I don’t want to be a pioneer

A singer sings a sad song when he’s sad
But honey all these years I’ve been upset
I’ve slowly turned
the kind of blue
that keeps your jeans dry..

– Dan Mangan (from ‘Et Les Mots Croises’)

I’ve been listening to two songs on loop all day. Dan Mangan writes so beautifully it gives me goosebumps to hear him sing.

Nothing like a lovely, sad song to colour your day blue. There’s a lot I need to tell you, Zonk. About cycles and work and violins. And about how I haven’t practiced all week because my neck hurts if I move it down even a bit. But I’m tired now and sleepy.

Oh well.

Oh broke, oh beat,
Oh twisted feet
and so on
and so forth
