In The Quiet (Andrew Bird : Souverian)

Exactly 4 weeks and 1 day ago I had a baby, my second Baby Bee Girl.

I tell you this only because I need you to know that I spend a lot of my days awake between the hours of 1a-5a, alone with a baby.

One of the (many, many, MANY) things no one tells you about having a baby is that it can be a lonely, isolating experience.  You’re alone sitting in the quiet, an overwhelming quiet.

I’ve been using that time to listen to music and find myself gravitating to quiet, soothing sounds that calm me and don’t wake a sleeping newborn.

Andrew Bird’s Souverian is one of those songs that gently fills the quiet.  A devastatingly gorgeous song by a man that single-handedly created the ‘devastatingly gorgeous song’ genre.

Just Hit Play.
