You’ve Got to Try

Crazy busy these days, no time, but need to point you to Kim’s piece on Otis Redding.

Yes, we’ve all heard it, we’ve heard it a lot. But listen to it. Listen to the words. In a world of glib snark, rotten communication, selfishness, narcissism, easy refusals of looking at the other damn side of a situation, walking in another man or woman’s shoes or just being real and kind, and not with extra emoticons attached to a hollow message, but real, the song is not only a gorgeous celebration of trying just that one word, it’s almost shockingly profound. This one could save more conflicts than months and months of couple’s therapy.
