It had been a long day. It was late, and I was feeling a little downtrodden. Some ups and downs of nonprofit work had been endured and it left me feeling physically and emotionally exhausted. I was expecting a rather quiet, sullen drive home when the notion hit me to put a very old CD into my car’s CD player and see what the last song on it was.
There it was. The intrepid, anticipatory strings and horn. The suspense and the goosebumps on my skin, knowing what emotions the song would bring.
