Mortality

January 1, 2008 psipsina

Last night the Red-Haired Boy and I caught the last twenty minutes or so of Paul Simon’s concert at the Library of Congress on the tube.  I had a hard time enjoying it, though, even though Simon is clearly still a consummate performer.

When he called Art Garfunkel on stage to sing “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” all I could think was, Who are these two old Jewish guys, and why is Simon and Garfunkel coming out of their mouths?

Maybe it would do me good to turn on a TV once in a while.  The last time I saw an image of Paul Simon was probably around the time of Rhythm of the Saints.

We are time’s subjects …
