What are we looking for?

“A piece of heaven they say

What are we looking for?

It’s tricky to explain….”

That’s a bit of the wonderful song Foreverland by The Divine Comedy. It’s on my playlist this morning.. so starting the day on the train thinking about what we’re all looking for.

For people on the train this morning, I’m gonna guess – a nap, a lottery win, different/better job… or maybe that’s just me! But I guess that’s a good thing – I’m tired because I’m a parent, a lottery win would get me a bigger house, but we just managed to get most of our roof fixed, so I’m less worried about ours at the minute (although the overcrowding situation can sometimes be a bit much!) And I have nothing at all against my job, except the travel bit. So really, not much falls into the ‘need’ category, it’s mostly a ‘want’ – nice, but I can live without!

What about you? If Foreverland is your ‘happily ever after’, what would make yours?

The Darkness is Coming…

So, my smallest (who’s 4) wanted to try out my headphones. I was cautious, knowing that mine are a hell or a lot louder than his ‘kid friendly’ ones, and most stuff I listen to is quite loud. But, I recently bought the album Foreverland (which is a whole post in itself) and got the ‘classical’ recording of ‘In May’ with it. So thought, he can listen to the introduction of that.

He likes my headphones apparently they are ‘squishier’ than his. His comments on the music? ‘It sounds like the darkness is coming’

A little bit creepy, right?

Repeat experiment, play introduction in the car… Ask again… Response:

‘It’s the darkness coming, it’s like dark magic and it’s gonna make a person be died’
In May is a person singing letters from a person who is dying of cancer. And he’s never heard it before (because of that).
