I sleep with a radio on most nights (when my husband doesn’t have the sound machine on) and have it on a station now that plays only Christmas music. This morning I awoke to Dan Fogelberg’s Same Auld Lang Syne. This is one of my favorite songs of all times and I’m so thankful I got to see this very talented artist sing it in person. Hearing it on the radio this morning took me back to a time a few years ago when my sisters and I went to Peoria, Illinois (where Dan Fogelberg is from– we were there for a Dan Fogelberg Memorial Dedication weekend). While there, they were giving trolley tours and one of the stops on the tour was the store in this song. My sisters and I didn’t actually go on the trolley tour but we purposefully did seek out and drove to the store mentioned in this song. The store is actually a convenience store mart and was still in business at the time. Then we drove by the liquor store also mentioned in the song (which I recall was right around the corner and not far from the store). There was just something special and hauntingly beautiful about actually being there. I truly love this song.
