just came into kitchen as kids were washing up and playing this song. have been thinking today about whether there are some folks out there making new starts with alcohol, perhaps not for the first time… it being the first of the month, and a Monday, and all…

and this song made me think of them, and of you whichever day you are on. because sometimes life is really tough, even if you are sober.

I didn’t know that ‘silver girl’ referred to Paul Simon’s girlfriend, in an affectionate reference to the first grey hairs she had found… love that. I am definitely a silver girl! and so are you, whatever colour your hair.

it’s now. your time has come to shine. even if it doesn’t feel specially shiny right now. so sail on by.
