Who knows the song Once In a Lifetime by Talking Heads?
I love that song.
It evokes all sort of existential questions, but in tone of mild adult resignation rather than rage-filled teenage angst. I've been playing it a lot lately - more than usual - because it seems to speak right to me.
The first line, 'And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack', seems particularly apt for our little hillbilly squad at the moment.
It's been hot. So very hot. We've been looking for innovative ways to keep the neighbourhood kids cool by day...
...and then, after 5pm when the heat has mostly left, some of us oldies (well, 30-somethings) can go out to wander our hills together in the name of exercise.
Lucinda doesn't nap at home anymore, so sometimes I just put her in the wonderful air conditioning of the car and we drive. We find the most fantastic little corners of the Lockyer Valley.
And just like that, we keep letting the days go by.
