The Boss

Five years ago I was introduced to Bruce Springsteen. His raspy voice resonated in my soul and I was hooked. Since then on The Boss has had a special place in my heart.

Mind you, I am not a part of the audience that he speaks to. I'm not in that generation, time, or place. But there's something about The Boss that speaks to me.

This week at work was excruciatingly slow for no reason. It wasn't bad or stressful or hard. It was just slow. Toward the end of the day I didn't have the willpower to use my brain anymore and so I turned to The Boss to get me through the day.

And he did.

Especially this song:

As soon as he started playing the harmonica I felt calm and at peace.

Thank you, Bruce, for getting me through my work day as you have for so many others.

  1. I always feel calm when that harmonica starts up.
    The Boss is amazing. I love this lyric: "Got God on my side, and I'm just trying to survive."
