Shut In

I am in my thirties now. It's so weird. I keep discovering that this age reveals newness reminiscent of teenage transformations. Like opening something within yourself that you didn't know existed, and maybe never wanted. New pains, new ideas, new longing, new questions. A new and undefined sense of loss. It's a strange time. I'm trying to fight the strangeness with a new mission to continually seek adventure. To let the petty things go. To focus. 

This incredible song expresses some of these sentiments beautifully. It's one of many phenomenal songs on Strand of Oaks' album HEAL. If you don't own it, I highly recommend purchasing it. It's so wonderful. So very, very wonderful.
