Undertow [May. 25th, 2018|01:44 pm]
Tony Grist
What is it about the word "undertow"? I just stumbled across it in a friends blog- and here we go again- the familiar, unexplained emotional response- a longing and a regret- and the reason for it just out of reach.

Suzanne Vega has a song called Undertow. I used to play it and replay it. The single line- "I am a friend to the undertow" brought tears to my eyes. Still does.

Perhaps I was lost at sea in some former life. Perhaps I was lost at sea more than once.

How interesting.

Suzanne Vega is underappreciated.

I've lost track of her career- but I loved her early work.
