I just posted a throwback but I also just discovered that Aretha Franklin has passed. May she rest in peace. This song’s for her.
(My 2 cents: It’s a shame how social media just kills people off before their time. I’ve been hearing Aretha died for days now even though that wasn’t the truth. So, for the record, Franklin died today, August 16th at 9:05a this morning and not a day or days before. She passed at her home in Detroit, surrounded by family and friends, according to a statement on behalf of Franklin’s family from her longtime publicist Gwendolyn Quinn.)
Been a minute since I threw it back to the early 2000s. This been my jam lately. Even though I’ve been married several years, I always think about my hubby when this song comes on. I still have a crush on him! 💜
Ya’ll know this was the jam, don’t front lol

I love this song. The lyrics are beautiful. I love music. When I am music I am ocean. I am sea. I am one racing body of water. I am tucked between the words and feeling every psalm with my soul. This is that kind of song.
