Sibelius, Sonja and I
I was listening to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s 1979 recording of Sibelius when Sonja came home with some groceries and wine.
I was just about to tell her how fucking excellent I thought the record was until she put in her two bits worth ahead of me.
“This sure is depressing. What the fuck is it?”
“It’s the collectible record I was telling you about last night. Now I know why. It is beautiful as one thousand acres of marijuana near harvest.”
Lou Reed wrote a song about couples like us. Hot dog/tofu couples and how they make their differences into something worth hanging on to forever. It is called “Love Is Here To Stay.”
