Esperanza Spalding - I Can't Help It (Michael Jackson cover)
Just when I'm convinced that I couldn't possibly love this queen more...she proves me wrong. Consistently. Dearest Esperanza, BE MINE!!
She's just a gorgeous, soulful, woman in full. Her energy is like a drug and I am always grateful for the high.
This particular video resonates deep within me because it transports me back to my first 'almost' affair. Same dynamic...in a pretty damn perfect relationship with a man, strong mutual attraction building between myself and a woman. Only difference being that the relationship between the male and I ended before I began to heavily indulge in my feelings for the woman. I reiterate the word, "heavy" because under the societial norms of a relationship, I may or may not have broken a few of the rules.
I remember it all...the hand-holding in the park at sunset, staring at photos I took of her for hours on end, embracing her scent on pieces of clothing that I wore whenever we would hug, blowing off the things that I should be doing just for a fleeting lunch rendezvous, etc. etc.
You know that whole 'falling in love' thing. Le Sigh. I can admit that in the beginning, I was nothing more than an innocent starry-eyed sucker for some true to form amour.
Remembering the times,
