ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
Monday music: "Solsbury Hill"
There was a day in the spring of 1988 when I was driving into Manhattan in my 1977 Ford Pinto to go to my local comic shop, which was Action Comics on East 81st Street. (Interesting trivia -- that was where I first met Scott Dunbier, who worked there as a young man. These days, Scott is an editor at IDW, and a damn fine one, too.) It was a beautiful day, the sun was out, not a cloud in the sky, I had the windows down, and I was driving home on the FDR, the sunlight glinting off the skyscrapers, and "Solsbury Hill" by Peter Gabriel came on the radio.

That moment is forever etched in my memory. Everything was perfect in that moment. I was in college, incredibly happy, as I blossomed at Fordham University. The adult I was to become truly coalesced at Fordham. I had just picked up some comic books. I had a wonderful girlfriend, whom I would later marry. And it was a beautiful day out as I was driving in my city. The soundtrack of that moment is, of course, "Solsbury Hill," and so it's here now on this beautiful fall afternoon.......

Current Mood: happy happy
