oh boy (self portrait with shelf behind me)

Here’s a song and a self portrait. I first heard the song in the movie The Great Beauty (which just won best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars and really is a movie worth checking out). The scene in which the song plays is right after someone dies and the main character, Jep, is in a cafe and each person he looks at moves in slow motion and is a little bit strange. One woman takes his hand and says, “Who’s going to take care of you now?” Right after my mom died that’s how it felt to walk into a room. It still feels that way, maybe not every time, but often, and sometimes it’s almost too much to keep walking into rooms.
