Today's song was inspired by the 100 Word Song Challenge. This week Lance has chosen the song "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nicks wrote that song about her father and though I wasn't really up to doing a song about mine, this being the first holiday without him...it was important for me to do the challenge, and to not write about him.
In a twist of fate, or maybe not, it is also Lance and his wife Deana's anniversary. So I've taken them as inspiration for the challenge. Now, as I only know them online, any resemblance to real people is just coincidence...or maybe not.
"For them, it was always about falling.
Meeting one November morning, when she slipped on the icy walkway and he caught her before she fell.
The feeling of his breath falling away, looking into her blue eyes the first time, and every time since.
Knowing the baggage of their pasts was falling from their hearts…little by little, day by day.
Gracelessly falling out of bed, while making love the first time and laughing ‘til they cried.
Seeing problems in life, once boulders coming toward them, turn to stones as they fought them together.
All this, by just falling in love."
