Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth
I look at you, and I sigh.
The next day, Sun Lundell (also known as "Mrs Future") celebrated her birthday at a beach house in Aptos. August and Nick brought their instruments and played jigs and reels while Corinna danced her heart out. For the time it took to play half a dozen tunes, the three of us seemed to merge into a single organism -- one of the great events of the month for me, a month, moreover, that will soon host a rare Blue Moon.
