A few years ago I received a phone call from a man I had never met. I settled on my bed, listened, and wondered what it was that this stranger on the other end of the line wanted with me. At the time, I was suffering from paralyzed hands and constantly struggling with pain. I heard the voice on the other end say, "I understand." He told me his own story and in that space- we became friends.
I'm not quite sure when or how it happened but soon we were sending each other songs all the time. "Check your inbox, there's a really good dance one!" or "Have you heard the new album from so-and-so?" Maybe that's just how we get by he and I. Maybe he just has realllly good taste in music.
