I had a long drive back to North Idaho from the wedding, made especially long by the roundabout route I took. It was a very good trip though; for reasons I’ll touch upon in future posts. Along the way, and as it happened, I passed a lot of the driving time listening to the brilliant Scottish composer and musician, Gerry Rafferty. His droning and melancholy music, often reminiscent of a bagpipe’s sad but strong wail, seemed somehow particularly appropriate after the high and happy times of the two wedding days and celebrations. I particularly got hooked, this time, on Rafferty’s “When We Were Young We Used to Sing,” which starts at 32:25 in the above YouTube video. Listen to it carefully a couple of times and you may sense why it fit my post-wedding and reflective mood so well. So nice to have all of you in our family! Esp., of course, Stewart.
