[♫ NOW PLAYING ♫] Yesterday

Last night Chris played this for his son, Tor, before he went to bed. Tor, who is four, absolutely LOVES The Beatles. Tor snuggled up with me on the couch and while Chris strummed, beautifully as always, we sang along. And while we were all singing, I felt a pang of sadness. I held Tor and sang. Chris strummed the guitar and sang. Markus typed on his laptop and sang. Stacy tidied up the kitchen and sang. Maybe I’m projecting my own psyche, but I felt like we were all singing the song to ourselves – our former selves now gone. I never realized what a sad song it was until last night. Yes, there is so much beauty in my life. Yes, I am thankful for my life – this awesome trip that I am on, getting to relax, ski, and be with good friends. But somehow I think, particularly on this trip, we are all, on varying levels, feeling a sense of loss, mourning our former selves.

“Yesterday”

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be
There’s a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, I yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go I don’t know she wouldn’t say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go I don’t know she wouldn’t say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm
