Reason to Believe

It came on the radio this morning, as I was sitting in bed drinking my coffee and trying to take stock of the day to come ... a few bars of melancholic piano introduction, finishing on a chord full of potential and optimism. I probably hadn't heard it for 30 years or more, but I knew instantly what it was and every word, the Hammond organ part, the violin solo, the whole song came back to me as perfectly as my musical limitations permitted.

Perhaps I need to find that chord, and play it to myself whenever I need it.
