Was in a conversation about 2020 and politics and someone said “this is going nowhere” and in my head I said “one last time let’s go there” because somehow, Paolo Nutini’s magical song from 2006 jumped into my head.
#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for the connections our mind makes for us, bringing me all the way back here. To this song.
He was 19 when he created this. When I was 19 I had barely created memories, let alone anything memorable.
How did politics get me to Paolo Nutini?
The beauty of words phrases and stories I guess?
What he did with those two sentences dances on my mind, my tongue, and depending on the moment, my heart. “Sure I can accept that we’re going nowhere
But one last time, let’s go there”
Applies to so many things? Like in this case the spark that was politics in the US but wow, so many things.
