Sorry I didn’t get this posted yesterday. Life in quarantine is both hectic in how many parts of your routine you have to be constantly adjusting, and plasmic in how oddly viscous and slow the pace of that routine can be. I suppose I could use the word elastic to describe how flexible we need to remain. I suppose I am also a little worn out by the routine.
Either way, I didn’t want to skip a week entirely right now, and this song has been on my mind lately, as I remember the time before the pandemic and look optimistically toward a time when it is managed. And maybe it’s also a time to consider pop stars who have been maligned (fairly or unfairly).
