A heartbreaking work of a Chocolate Genius.

Please listen to THIS. All of it. Or else.

God damn you, D.

Now go call your mom. Her job was harder than you think.

That is an amazingly beautiful song. Thank you.

Agh! Way too heavy for the morning. Especially since it reminds me of my grandma.

I'm putting this song in my toolbox to use before my next visit home. Keeps it real and simple truth.

Hmm, now how to explain to the coworkers why I'm crying at the computer. Who cares. They already think I'm nuts.

I came so close to dismissing the link. But you are persuasive. I am crushed in a beautiful way. Broken a little bit open.

Mamacita...perfectly put.

I don´t think it´s a beautiful song, in fact I think it´s preety boring, but still made me think of my hardworking mom. I think I´ll call her right now.

So glad I didn't check the site this morning, at work. I lost my Grandma to disease. So glad I checked it tonight, at home. Thanks for posting.

The song tries too hard. The subject matter is touching but the song doesn't touch me.

Yeah, there were too many notes.

Tomorrow I expect video of sharecropper amputees performing a synchronized swimming routine (clockwise, of course).

What's the update on the reno? Enough with all this other stuff.

I love him - and actually know him. He is my friend Kate's man!
Super talented. All my favorites depress the shit out of me. Wonder what that says about me?

What an unnecessary downer...and I like melancholy music! Thanks Anon @ 8:38. I needed a major injection of humor after listening to that.

Dear Decorno
Thank you for always keeping it real.

Thank you for never trying to tell us that Pretty! and Ikat! are more important than they are.

My Mother has Alzheimer's. Very sad. It is a slow decline, worse each year. My Dad and brother live at home with her and work hard everyday to meet her (increasing) needs. I live 1,000 miles away. Wish I didn't. Would move if we could find jobs back home. When my Mother sees me, she doesn't know who I am. She is at the stage where she is now having trouble constructing speech. The speech she can construct does not make sense. In many ways, the Mother I knew is already gone. Her body is an empty shell. She was/is a wonderful Mother and woman; I love her and miss her, but carry all that she taught me in my heart and try to be as loving, inspiring and giving as she was.

Sometimes I read a story, or see a piece of art, or listen to a song, that makes me love humanity so fiercely that I burst into tears.

This is one of those songs.

All of you people that are like "I don't need this, WTF" should be ashamed of yourselves. Seriously. If you don't like it, keep it to yourself. Decorno was sharing something meaningful and most of the people here were moved by it. Even if it wasn't your thing, let it go and keep the nastiness to yourself. I am sure that most of you that are complaining are the people that consistently complain no matter what the subject is.

I think the song is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
