urge for going

So go we must.
There’s a Joni song for all occasions, this one’s for now. A perfect piece of melancholy mid-60s folk, which suits today, as the good lady says, as winter’s closing in.
It’s been stuck in my mind for well over a week, even in my sleep, I kid you not. So I had to dig it out. The beautiful, apt lyrics going round and round my head; a call for action.
“Now the warriors of winter they gave a cold triumphant shout
And all that stays is dying
All that lives is getting out.”
