Still Listening: How?

November 7, 2015

Regina Spektor How

Today’s featured Still Listening song is “How?” by Regina Spektor. How does one find the strength to keep going after a loss? How can we imagine a world without that special someone in it once they’re gone? Spektor’s ballad asks many of the question many of us ponder late at night. “How can I never see you again? / How can I ever know / why some stay, others go / when I don’t / I don’t want you to go?” Have a favorite song that you think might help another parent?
