Slice of Lime-Black River

When I stepped into the river and waded out to my dad and stepmom they asked how the long drive was. I poured out the tale of automotive woe. They empathized then my stepmom said, "Well you're in the river now," as she smiled. I took a deep breath, sighed, and nodded as I realized I already felt better. In my mind I heard Amos Lee's Black River so that's this week's musical Slice of Lime. I didn't take any pictures of myself this time around so I'll just share the river shots and an old picture of my girls wading in.


Oh, Black River
Whoa, Black River
Gonna take my cares a way
Gonna take my cares a way
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take my cares away
Gonna take a my cares away
Gonna take a my cares gonna carry my cares

Oh, dear savior
Gonna take my cares away
Whoa, dear savior
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take my cares a way
Gonna take my cares away
Gonna take my cares away
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares

Whoa sweet whiskey lord
Oh, sweet whiskey, lord
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Gonna take my cares away
Your gone gonna take my cares a way
Gonna take my cares away
Gonna take my cares gonna carry my cares
Your gonna take my bottle, my bible, my mess
Gonna take my cares away

Gonna take all of that sadness inside of me
Your gonna take all of my empty and my loneliness
Gonna take it all and set me free

Oh, Black River
Gonna take my cares a way

~Amos Lee~

Ah yes, you're in the river now, as opposed to "up the creek."

Seriously, that was a great choice of words from your stepmom, to help you transition to a better frame of mind.
