Reliving 20 Years Ago via Music

Time Again... Amy Grant LiveTime traveling via music is an amazing experience. I’ve been meaning to post about this for over a month now, but never seem to have the time.

Fern and the girls had left the night before for a girls trip back home to visit family and now it was nearing the end of the work day on that Friday when I received an email from an old friend. I hadn’t spoken to Molly in almost twenty years. We had been close friends back in high school. Late night talks on the phone until 2 AM (my mom still comments on those), long notes written and passed back and forth via mutual friends (because we went to different schools). We never dated, don’t know why, not that it matters now. She had just received her notice about her High School 20th Reunion and found me via Google. Anyway, we exchanged a couple of emails before I left to go home to an empty house. I had a lot planned for the weekend (and even got some of it done), but …

On a whim I had recently checked out of our local library a copy of Time Again… Amy Grant Live. So when I got home from work I dug it out of my bag, dropped it in the CD player, and cranked up the volume. The next thing I knew it was 1987. Thanks to Molly’s email I not only heard the music, but I was blown away emotionally. I don’t thank I would have felt the connection so deeply if I wasn’t slightly lonely with Fern and the girls being away, and without Molly’s email.

If you’ve been a fan of Amy Grant at any point in her nearly 30 year career, then this is must purchase CD. She plays some of her best songs in a live event that is extremely well produced. If you want to know more about Amy and her music, then be sure and check her out at www.amygrant.com
