This morning, I listened to some of my favorite Simon and Garfunkel songs from the 60s: "The Boxer" and "I Am a Rock" and my special favorite "America." They all came along when America was adrift and I in particular was adrift—lost really. There is a line in that song that resonated very strongly with me then and I have always remembered it with emotion: "I'm empty and aching and I don't know why." Anyone who has ever paid attention to the world around them, especially in times of great uncertainty and disappointment—and/or has lived through depression—can understand why that song line speaks so powerfully to such moments. "America" also has a line "they've all come to look for America." Aren't we today all doing that again?!!
