A sweet girl can stop big men in their tracks

I love this song and it reminds me of a bizarre thing that happened back in the mid 90s. I was in a car with three other men; rowdy, jokey and off to some training in the area of packaging for the fresh red meat industry. Good days.

All the banter stopped the second this song came on. Everyone just quietly listened and when the song finished, we just started talking normally. About other things. Nobody even mentioned the song - probably didn't even think of it.

I think about that with my daughter. Something about a sweet girl that can just shut up some of the loudest blokes. This is not political and I'm not telling anyone how to be. It's just something I notice about myself.

And Jewel Kilcher. What an amazing story.
