Only the best people have wings

7 Mar

The other day, whilst I was scanning idly through Google images I came across this extraordinary picture of Jeff Buckley.

OK so it’s an old one. I’m often late to cotton on. I only “discovered” him the year before last. He was the ideal soundtrack to my Indian travels. (I can’t hear Dream Brother without being back on that balcony looking out over the lake in Udaipur or the night mail train to Gujarat.)

Zachary Blue wore wings too, on stage. It made Elizabeth believe he was an angel. A year or two after I realized this about Zak, I started finding lots of photos of people wearing wings. Only the best folks have them, I think. The most fantastical, dreamer-like, genius type people. Guys and girls who seem to live outside of this world.

I wish I could have wings too. I could flap my arms and fly away from everything. Novel writing is much harder than I thought it was going to be.
