Hi friends. I have a new favorite song. It’s “Budapest” by George Ezra. I would insert it here but I’ve kind of forgotten how, what with my prolonged absence, and i-pads are quirky about using photos and music, so it would be a lot quicker for you to google it. I like the Saturday Night Live version on You Tube. It’s not the official video, but it is the better one; the live one where you connect with the artist who is young, talented, and thrilled to be doing his thing. Every once in awhile he smiles at someone in the audience and you wonder…does he know that person? Is it someone special? A muse, perhaps? Is he in love? The sparkle in his eye and the innocent smile say it all. I’m so entranced by this song and his huge talent combined with his youth that I feel a little like a vampire…..it’s like I want to suck all that exuberance from him and claim it as my own. I want to live forever. Honestly, I’m not even sure what the lyrics say, but they make me nostalgic for something I can’t name. I love that feeling. Do you know the one I mean? It encompasses a lot of possibility-the idea that if I could just drill down to the one thing that would complete me, then surely it is within my grasp.
I hope you are all doing well.
