Is It Really So Simple?

I know I've heard it before but I didn't really listen to Simple as sung by k.d. lang until this week. It's caught me as one of those songs that I don't have running on a loop in my head but I want it to be so I play it over and over and over. It's got me thinking of Auntie. These lyrics in particular:

"I worship this tenacity
And the beautiful struggle were in
Love will not elude us"

Later, though, I claim these for myself:

"I am calm in oblivion
Calm, as I ever have been"

Now if I could just teach myself the "love is simple" part, I think I'd be in better shape.


  1. Simply Beautiful. I wish you love Kizz.

  2. Love is indeed simple. It's also maddeningly complex. This paradox is what has kept writers busy for millennia.

  3. I have never heard that song before. Thanks, it's nice. I may be a bad lesbian... Never been a fan of K.D....

  4. I like her. I'll do your share of the listening.
