Sharon Van Etten, “The End of the World”
It can’t come soon enough.
I am sorry to keep banging on about my theory that every day is a combination of Monday and Friday now, but as it has become apparent that crazy doesn’t even take the weekend off anymore it is impossible to deny that each morning feels like a Monday morning these days. Guess what? Real Mondays aren’t any easier to take just because you’ve gotten used to their rest-of-the-week facsimiles. Everything is impossible to face now. Let’s just be quiet for a bit and listen to this terrific Sharon Van Etten cover of the Skeeter Davis classic “The End of the World.” Enjoy. And good luck out there, it’s Monday today.
