First day, first morning commuter train, first early morning, first office coffee, first office with correct lighting. And when I come home I eat a meal that is too big, sign up for a gym that is too cheap. Sit in front of the computer going back 2007, falling to silence, falling into the questions. ‘Its just a life story so there’s no climax’ Okkervil River front singer Will Sheff belts out in a real kick as chorus in Our Life Is Not a Movie or Maybe from their fantastic 2007 album The Stage Names. ‘Hey I’ll watch it!’
Welcome to your new life, thank you, no problem, set your alarm, put on some old music, look back, close your eyes, wave goodbye.
