the Nurse is In

green car.

Remember the feeling of possibility? When life felt ripe and the world was your playground? The rush of adrenaline knowing that you were a mound of clay waiting to take shape. Career-less, Love-less, Personna-less. What an exciting stage in life-to sit at the wheel of your car and just drive, not knowing where you were heading but knowing something truly remarkable was in store for you. Friendships seemed unbreakable, dreams vivid and you, the writer of the script of your life.

I remember that feeling on more than one occasion. First when I began my years at UBC, again when I moved to Winnipeg and finally when I moved back home with a nursing degree in tow. Nervous excitement that the possibilities for me were countless and endless, that I could explore every option and keep doing so until something just fit. A new home, new friends, money in the bank account and a young, fresh outlook -all the ingredients to endless possibilities.

What an exciting stage in life... youth, tonight I salute you.

Calling All Angels, Jane Siberry

a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
and high above the church bells start to ring
and as the heaviness the body
oh the heaviness settles in
somewhere you can hear a mother sing

then it`s one foot then the other
as you step out onto the road
how much weight? how much weight?
then it`s how long? and how far?
and how many times before it`s too late?

calling all angels
calling all angels
walk me through this one
don`t leave me alone
calling all angels
calling all angels
we`re cryin` and we`re hurtin`
and we`re not sure why...

and every day you gaze upon the sunset
with such love and intensity
why it``s almost as if
if you could only crack the code
then you`d finally understand what this all means

but if you you think you would
trade it in
all the pain and suffering?
ah, but then you`d miss
the beauty of the light upon this earth
and the sweetness of the leaving

calling all angels
calling all angels
walk me through this one
don`t leave me alone
callin` all angels
callin` all angels
we`re tryin`
we`re hopin`
we`re hurtin`
we`re lovin`
we`re cryin`
we`re callin`
`cause we`re not sure how this goes

Sia, Breathe Me

This is the song that plays in the final scene of Six Feet Under. Truly one of the most moving songs and scenes I have ever seen. Brilliance.
