I've been listening to The Whitalms latest cd "Little Cloud". In a beautiful song at the end of the cd Tim Freedman is singing about returning to Sydney from New York and wandering around the city remembering his friend who committed suicide. Freedman sings "Stay away from edges, and ropes if you can" . Decorating pots and listening to this I've thought for ages he was singing:
"Stay away from Hedges and Boats, if you can."
This strikes me as a good, if slightly surrealistic motto for avoiding the pitfalls of 21st century life. Don't get dragged into the sinister blackhole of the unknown and unknowable - stay away from Hedges........
......and boats if you can.
