Fifty of th(os)e year(s)

I can’t believe I was only nine.

I woke up this morning in need of strawberries and coffee, so I didn’t hang around but got dressed and jumped in the car.

By the time I got in the car – matter of minutes – another song was jigging around in my brain, but as I got dressed…

I joined in – singing wholeheartedly.

A symbolic, futile, gesture against reality.

But now I discover that this song first touched me when I was 9!

My heart has been yearning for tooooooooo long.
