Jeff Mach helps me become “Closer to Fine”

I’m trying to tell you something about my life
Maybe give me insight between black and white
The best thing you’ve ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously, it’s only life after all
Well darkness has a hunger that’s insatiable
And lightness has a call that’s hard to hear
I wrap my fear around me like a blanket
I sailed my ship of safety till I sank it, I’m crawling on your shore.

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain
There’s more than one answer to these questions
pointing me in crooked line
The less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine.


Indigo Girls, “Closer to Fine”

Last night, Jeff Mach helped me understand what these lyrics truly mean to me. If I were to sing these quoted lyrics to you, Jeff, it would express how I feel right now and what I learned last night.

Jeff, your friendship is priceless to me. Thank you for teaching me about what I wouldn’t understand. Thank you for making the lightness louder and being the shore when I need it. Thank you for being you.
