Today I am older than some and younger than many. I sometimes feel like I lost a decade somewhere years ago, probably because someone stole it from me, and I’m just now 23 or 26. At other times, I imagine I feel 45 or 63. In order to make myself supremely happy and relaxed, to forget the stress tension in the crook of my neck and the dangling side mirror on my car, today I play one of my favorite songs since I was little, from one of my favorite albums and artists. It instantly calms me and melts away any cynicism. Possibly my favorite love song/poem.
