I turned 40 yesterday. I guess that makes me middle aged.
My theme song is “40 Years,” by House of Freaks. It’s not really about turning 40. It’s about nuclear war. But I’ve been humming the chorus:
A million hearts, a million minds
Have lived and died in 40 years
Pray for yourself and for your memories
And be thankful we’ve had 40 years.
The last time I quoted the song, it was under more tragic circumstances, in an obituary for murdered lead singer Bryan Harvey.
