Yet another song I'm madly in love with

Why did I wait to download the Jason Robert Brown album? Oh, that's right, I decided that it didn't look worth spending the money on. For free, that's another story.

Anyway, why have I never heard Music of Heaven before today? It's perfection. Here . . .

I expect to turn around quickly one day, and see JRB crouching behind something, taking notes about my life. It started with I'm Not Afraid of Anything; before that song, a piece of music had never made me feel so vulnerable, so known. So many of his songs have been just a little closer to my experience than others, and have been more powerful because of it. This song mirrors me, and it's comforting. My challenges are not unique, other people have been here before, others will visit long after I've moved on.
