Oh my gosh! This entire post made me teary-eyed. From knowing how tough everything has been to knowing just how strong and amazing you are. Your perseverance gives me hope in so many of my personal issues.
My sister and I, together with pretty much all my friends, love your music. You were and still are our soundtrack. When we make trips, we make sure to listen and sing along to pretty much every song… albums from start to finish. Each song talks about something so beautiful all in its own, and the amount of thought that seems to go into each just feels so amazing to scream along to…. -sorry, don’t mean to rant with fangirl-ism.
I’m about to start quoting several things you wrote in here just because I find them so inspiring. The description of the upcoming album’s song was enough to make me need to listen to it as soon as I can get my ears on it. And, yes, please keep going. Your mind and lyrics are too great to hold them from us. ;)
You hold a place in our hearts, Dia! I hope I get to see you again. And if I do, I’m gonna make sure to steal a hug from you after your show or wherever…. given the chance :)
