Even though the BoDeans came out of the Milwaukee area, they still remind me of small town Minnesota. For the first six years of my Z’s lives, we lived in a very small Minnesota town filled with Lutherans and Finnlanders. This song was big there as were the Gear Daddies and later Martin Zeller and G.B. Leighton. But this song always brings me back.
There is a family of Cokato Finnlanders that I hold dear to my heart and their community is hurting right now at the sudden loss of a wonderful young man. I thought of my Finnlander friend, Matt, when I just watched this video and thought, ‘just keep moving, good things will come again.’ So for Matt and all of the wonderful people walking through dark days right now…
BoDeans. Good Things.
Enjoy the weekend.
Sometimes you just need someone to be there…so the dark isn’t quite so big.
