Fields of Gold


If Paul and I have a song, this is it.

Before we were an “us”, we walked and talked of far away plans and snips of memories and favorite everythings. How could we not touch on the musical genius that is Sting?

He begged me to borrow this CD*, to listen to this song.

I did, and I guess that’s where it all began.

After that, it wove its way all through our romance–copied onto mix tapes and played on jukeboxes, it was the starring track of our wedding music CD.

More than ten years later, this is what love sounds like to me.
