When we were young

this was our song. We thought we were invincible and wonderful and completely in love and nothing terrible would ever happen to us. Who knew? Still, Benny and Joon is about as perfect a film as ever was, and I’m glad they have our song. It’s a good song. It’s still our song.  And even here, today, in this awful, frightening mess, I sing it.

About pippa

40-something, yogi, gardener, reader and writer. Not great at any of those things but more than happy to be average. I'm anxious, depressed, chaotic, boring, delighted, excited and often foolish. It's all good. And cake.
