Almost a coward

October 8, 2011


My kids have left to go out. With their friends. My wife is upstairs preparing for Thanksgiving. (Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend) I’m feeling quite sentimental. Remembering when my wife and I were first dating. And how I thought she would leave me. For her old boyfriend. And I listened to Jacques Brel. And I thought this is the voice of loss. Of being young. And in love. And barely able to handle that love. Almost a coward. Wanting to feel anything else. If you haven’t heard Jacques Brel sing then you are in for an experience.
