A Song for Rebekah
Well, it's just one line from a song. And I'm not clever enough to have written the lyrics myself, like she did awhile back. Nonetheless, I've found this line from Over the Rhine's "Lookin' Forward" stuck on repeat in my head lately....
"I'm lookin' forward to lookin' back"
Someday, we too will be among those people tellin' the youngsters struggling with their kids to "enjoy every minute, these are the best days of your life." (Really? Will we really? Will we too be afflicted--perhaps blessed--with selective amnesia? Well, at least we'll have some great moments to look back on, and (DV) a passel of grandchildren to share them with...)
Don't have a clip of this song, but if you want to hear "Drunkard's Prayer" (the title track from the same album), go here (Album, recommended.)
