“The Sun is the Same in a Relative Way, But You’re Older”

Meandering through my Sunday afternoon, I stopped into an antique store around the corner to look for a set of bedside tables. The music that they had selected for the afternoon was Pink Floyd’s Time. Wandering through people’s discarded furniture: a vanity from the 1940’s, an armoire from the 1960’s, grandfather clocks and china and silver platters and jewelry boxes packed floor to ceiling to a psychedelic soundtrack was totally surreal. It felt in some ways completely appropriate. At the same time, though, I imagine when the band wrote the song they didn’t think it would ever become the soundtrack for a Sunday afternoon in an antique shop.
