By now you all undoubtedly know that I’m a Beatles fanatic. Well, I do listen to other music (sometimes), and this is one of my other favorite bands. I love them. Have for many years. And I have always loved this song from the first moment I heard it. Especially right now, at this time of year.
And yet sometimes, the impossible happens. And a song you have always related to without fail suddenly hits you in a new and more profound way. So looking back at my year, especially the past few months, I relate to it much, much more than I ever have.
I can’t remember the last thing that you said as you were leaving / If you think that I could be forgiven . . . / The smell of hospitals and winter
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower, makes you talk a little lower, about the things you could not show her.
Yes, it has been a very, very long December. And indeed, maybe this year will be better than the last. We can only hope.
Happy New Year, everyone.
