“Home” is one of my very favorite tracks from “This Is Happening.”
Recently the line “This is the trick, forget a terrible year” has really been resonating with me. You grow up thinking that every year is going to be better than the last until finally you have a bad one and realize that you’re not that lucky. That line sort of encapsulates the feelings I’ve had lately. I spent about 6 weeks sick with various ailments, SLC had a short summer, I’ll probably make less money this year than last… some of these things are trivial I suppose but these are things that affect me and this is me discovering that some years are going to be better than others.
So, here is to a wonderful 2011.
