I’ve been a fan of Tori Amos since I was seventeen years old and something that never fails to amaze me is how often her music seems to tap directly into a particular vein of my life in incredibly unexpected ways.

For example, the song “Selkie” from the latest album. Well, my daughter has long been obsessed with the story “The Selkie Bride”  as told on the Tell Me A Story audiobook compilation. She listened to that story almost every night for over a year and while she’s moved on at this point, it remains one of her all-time favorite stories that she returns to for comfort.

When this album came out and the song “Selkie” was on it both she and I felt like once again Tori had tapped into the most important veins of love, comfort, joy, inspiration, and wonder in our lives.
