“You’re a needle girl
In a haystack world
We are right now.”
Lately these words written by Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman have been resonating in my head. Written for the song “Needle And Haystack Life” off of the bands newest album Hello Hurricane serve as a reminder that we are all the needle in a haystack. Each of us with our own strengths and weaknesses; adding to the lives of the people around us.
When I think of my relationships it often feels like meeting many of the people are truly the needles in the haystack of my life. The once in a lifetime meetings, chances being taken, living in the moment. That is what makes my life truly worth living.
