get up on some sunny day and run

patty griffin. i had forgotten how much i love her. we saw her at acl live the other night, and i remembered. she is spectacular. her last album was written in honor of her late father.

and so, i think this song is a fitting tribute to my grandfather, "bumpy," who lost a long, mean battle today. bumpy was a dignified man with staggering one-liners and the best habit of adding a -y or
-ie to his loved-ones' names. he inherited his tender heart from my great grandmother, margery, and he nurtured that same heart in my dad. i will miss him dearly.
