Time's a shark
and in a hurry
It's the most wonderful time of the year. Well, for some people. For others, it's the most hurried, nervous, pressure-filled time of the year. A time when we miss people, when family gatherings don't always come to be. A time when we can't always get what we want.
And maybe Matthew Ryan just recognizes the reality around him -- that we need to slow down, to focus on what's real.
The more I listen to Ryan's latest album, I Recall Standing As Though Nothing Could Fall, I wonder if it's about that point in your life when you realize that time is precious, and that if you could, you would spend every second with someone you love.
