Road tripping down south to the sandy dunes of the Outer Banks. We’ve made this a tradition of painful laughter, heavy drinking and tangled relationships. But the friendships remain true and I wouldn’t trade these people for the world. Passing between walls of wind and sand with nothing ahead but a stretch of slow road, we toast the struggles of each past year and the understanding of those to come. These are the moments of nostalgic sound and hearty sing-alongs.
Neil Young opens that nook in your soul and fills it with the shared angst of existence. The song was originally released in 1972 on Young’s album Harvest, and the narrative prevails still 40 years later.
Old man look at my life,
and there’s so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.
Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don’t get lost.
Like a coin that won’t get tossed
Rolling home to you.”
