While we're thinking about the last twenty years of a person's life and what it all means and so much that changes — I just wanted to make sure — you do know this song, yes?
I mean, it would be such a crying shame to spend all these years on planet Earth, and be born and live and die without having the chance to hear it.
This song is very definitely one of the things I came to Earth to experience. I heard it first when I was about eleven or twelve, a year or two after it was first aired. I was transfixed. Delighted. I've been listening to it ever since. Our friend Carien from the Netherlands refers to our family as Group W entirely as a result of the song.
It was a true story.
