When I calculate the number of boxes I will need for my books, my eyes are dry. My hands are quick as I type emails about housing options, or scribble lists of pre-moving tasks. But these songs still my hands, calling me to listen, remember, and give thanks. I have tried to assemble songs fit for this season: hopeful in their sadness, timely in their joy: beautiful music to enrich the process of bidding fare-thee-well and God-be-with-you. I began compiling this list months ago, but only in the last week or two have I begun to listen. Now I want you to listen with me.
What songs help you say farewell? Do you have any suggestions for songs as I prepare this soundtrack for departure?
