Called From Wild and Far Away

This single from Future Islands snuck up on me in these early, uneasy days of fall 2020. It reminded me of one of my favorite little moments:

You know when you’re boppin’ through life just minding your own business, and a song pulls up alongside you and matches your speed? Can’t will it to happen, or invite it; can’t go looking for it; just happens. And eventually you look up and over, catch its gaze, and—this is my favorite part—suddenly you can’t remember not knowing the damn thing. It’s part of you now, always has been.

I love that.
