NaBloPoMo Finish Line

It hasn't been easy, but for the second year in a row, I've managed 30 posts in 30 days.

The fitting way to close out the special month would be to post a Lyle video, but the one I want to post isn't available for embedding, so please follow this link to YouTube to see:

South Texas Girl

I first heard the song in concert about a year and a half ago, and despite repeated listenings, it still can make me a little teary. The video is even more so — old home movies of the Lovett family, interspersed with close ups of the musicians in the studio and some current family video.

And the video also answers a question I had about the song. I wasn't sure if the "South Texas Girl" was his mother or his fiancee, or perhaps both. I think the video suggests the answer is both.
