Sitting at the Beaches, at a picnic table. Sitting with a notebook and pen and CIUT playing Dig on my phone. I don’t have headphones, so I’m using my phone’s speaker, but I don’t think anyone else can hear – we’re spread out here at the Beaches.
The first song on Dig was Summertime with Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong – and it’s been Armstrong since. Right now “A Wonderful World” is playing. This song froze in time for me when I saw Good Morning, Vietnam:
“Friends shaking hands, saying how do you do, they’re really saying, I...love...you” (yada yada) “What a Wonderful World.”
