Doubts about Starting a New Relationship Not Long After a Breakup...

So, I'm just three months out of a 1-year relationship and recently met somebody really amazing. We're taking it very slowly so far, but after 4 or 5 dates I think there is definitely long-term relationship potential. The problem is: a voice at the back of my head is telling me maybe I'm not quite ready. How do I handle this? [more inside]

Lost: A Favorite Song

I am unable to find a song that I once had on my iPod. It's a post-rock number. Although there are no lyrics (that I recall, anyway), there is an extended sample (I don't know from where) of a guy talking about a hot night when the power went out in his apartment complex. He talks about a woman who lit candles, and somehow in the end this leads to an apartment fire. The song feels like the soundtrack to a dream. My memory is not 100% on these details. It's been well over a year since I heard it. But the song was really good and I think about it now and then and I really miss having it. Anyone recognize it?
