I love a good story and I love that all good stories are not happy ones. That’s the life we live: complex, not easily resolved in the 22 minutes of your favorite reality show or a 3:30 recording. Sometimes people get on your damn nerves, they might cause you to stop off at the 7-11 and pick up a pack of something or other. Ayah puts it all out here for the listening and if you’ve been there, done that you can certainly relate. Press play.
