I finish this afternoon and not everything has been done.
The work started to decline by the end. The dogs were barking, the wind was blowing far too much.
I start feeling agitated. And a deeper agitation starts to form because of the first. Compound interest.
Then I put on Billy Joel’s Vienna. And it’s the cure.
The lyrics get me.
“Where’s the fire? What’s the hurry about?”
He’s speaking to me.
“You better cool it off before you burn it out.”
This is it.
This man has spoken to me through this beautiful song.
His words have cured me.
And I’m reminded once again, art is the answer.
