The Transient Sessions Videos
I have always been a fan of Tom Petty for his ability to anchor deep messages in a sea of brilliant melodic simplicity. This song might be one of the peak examples of this. So clear, so true and melodically beautiful. I choose to release it now because it's the first video after my battle with respiratory failure. One month ago I was released from the hospital after a 16 day battle with bilateral Covid pneumonia resulting in acute respiratory failure. It was one of the worst and most beautiful experiences of my life. It was truly a Paschal experience for me. Despite the rewarding and beautiful elements of my stay I was eager to get out and be reunited with my wife and three children. My family and faith became the centerpiece of my focus and I executed every task they recommended for my recovery with determination. Cue the montage music! Without getting too sappy, let me just say I committed myself to hope through faith and pushed through any discomfort with inspired purpose. I was not going to back down. And so, this song seems fitting and it makes me happy to share it. I hope it may meet you where you are today, tomorrow and beyond.
