A year ago today, my grandfather died. A year ago, everything sort of set in motion, and if you’d told me then that I’d be here, in Morocco, where my grandfather lived for nineteen months, well, I wouldn’t have believed that. But as it were, next Tuesday, I will have lived in this country for six months straight. That’s insane when you think about it. How quickly the time is flying.
Anyway, I posted the song above, because the day my grandfather died, I played it over and over again and again. I also played it a lot for my sister when we were driving to the funeral. It doesn’t really have a lot to do with funerals or have some significant message. It’s just one of those things, when a song seems to define a moment in time for your life. And it’s a song I deeply cherish, so if you’ve never heard it, I hope you love it.
That’s all. Safi.
