Today is May 22, 2021 – and it’s the 50th anniversary of my parent’s wedding. Pretty amazing, crazy and perfectly reasonable considering the people they are. I put in an ad in the local paper and I called them this morning to congratulate them. They’re both in their late 70s but live a very active life, full of chores, staying healthy with quite a lot of gardening.
As it happened, after the call I spent the morning gardening while listening to Sylvan Esso and thinking about what kind of jam to do today.
One thing led to another, so I wrote a short song, or the start of the song. I might work on it, or not. Here’s the lyric and the first voicememo-recording of it.
