"Buildings and bridges are made to bend...

Tuesday, January 29, 2013
in the wind, to withstand the world that's what it takes.
All that steel and stone
is no match for the air, my friend
what doesn't bend breaks
what doesn't bend breaks...."

Ok, so you might not call it "current," but I still love this Ani DiFranco song from her 1994 album, "Out of Range."  You can listen to the rest of it here on YouTube, but I wish there was a good live performance to share.

What I love about this Righteous Babe is that she's been a champion of speaking her truth.  She's challenged conformity and embraced who she is.  Much of her music is political, but my favorite tunes are the personal songs that pull at my soul and push me to really look at those feelings.  She doesn't hide or shirk or become a prisoner to forum.  And now...she's a mommy, like me.  Suddenly she's all the more relatable.  

I needed to hear her song remind myself that even the strongest & tallest structures are made to bend in the wind.  To withstand the world it really is what it takes.
