"I'm Like A Bird" came on my Pandora this afternoon and it made me feel like a little girl again. In that moment, I was running down a dirt road in Maine, training for my upcoming middle school lacrosse season and listening to this song on my Walkman (the iPod of the 90s). I also remember a birthday sleepover where we sat around my friend's kitchen table and belted out the lyrics. I am like a bird, I only fly away, I don't know where my soul is, I don't know where my home is. How spiritual music can be! Transporting you to another time. A distant place in your history. Sometimes we need a reminder of where we came from.
