OK. So I love that song Landslide... the Stevie Nicks one... about getting older, seeing the landslide of age blah blah blah.
So. Clue number one that times are a'changing.
You're dancing to the newest Janet Jackson song, Feedback. Mostly because you're part of her base, i.e. the fans who have liked and followed her since Control and Rhythm Nation, and/or gay of any age. And you still like her music and artistry.
But while dancing, you notice you don't know one word of what she's singing. But all the folks born in the 80s dancing around you do. All you know are the words "Feedback. Feedback." And you're like, "There are actual words in the song?"
Funny moment. Um, but like Stevie Nicks sings, "I'm getting older too." Music is a nice clue when you're straddling that line between beatiful snow-covered mountain meadow... and an avalanche.
PS. But I am feeling much much better. A cold knocked me out for like three days this week.
