Fake Empires and Beyond: "I Am Easy To Find"

I think it began with these lines in The National's "Fake Empire"

Stay out super late tonight
Picking apples, making pies
Put a little something in our lemonade
And take it with us

No thinking for a little while 
Let's not try to figure out everything at once
 

There is no way I could have appreciated this then. 

Now, yes.  Timing is everything.

I want to say so much more about this, but the piece does just that with a nuance and grace that I can only
admire.


Thank you, Mike Mills and The National!

A New Irony Not Lost

Listening to a conversation between two members: "What's your worst actual nightmare?"   [...]

Hours later, deep sleep to wide awake, Me:  "Flowers For Algernon"


Worst fear come to life and writ large. 

Hat tip to the Universe.  Well played!
