Maybe this would have been the perfect soundtrack for that drive I made once from La Honda to Santa Cruz, fighting and eating smuggled produce and winding through the trees to find the sun and water over my right shoulder. Or maybe that day I took the train from 207 Street all the way to Coney Island for the Mermaid Parade, and somehow found my friend there in the crowd, already drunk and making friends with a drunk mechanic from Queens and his drunk teenage daughter. But it's 2013 and I'm driving home in the night under a bright moon that's almost full, with a sleepy three year old in the backseat who's listening too, and she asks, "Mama, does this lady live here, on planet Earth? I want to meet her." The ongoing WOW is happening right now.
