Day 1 of 35 • This day’s reading
Do you like blues music? I really do. Even though I grew up far, far away from the Mississippi Delta, there is something about that gritty music that resonates with my soul. I never had to chop cotton or work as a sharecropper to make my living, but I’ve had my own pain and hard times, and those old songs sing to me. One of my favorites is Booker T. Jones’ “Born Under a Bad Sign,” which talks about hard luck and trouble plaguing his whole life.
