Slip Slidin’ Away is one of my favorite Paul Simon songs. Sylloge wrote about the 3rd verse and how it so captures a feeling of loss and desperation. It is a beautiful song, in much the same way that Yesterday is a beautiful song. I believe there are certain songs … writings … pieces of art … that are such perfect examples of a purity of feeling that they overwhelm. It is in these that I find faith, and hope, and love.
