Speaking of luck...
I’m lucky enough to have an online friend (Scilla from Switzerland) who sends great music my way. This rural corner of the world has many virtues, but since we’ve lived here I’ve found it hard to come across new music I love. Chalk it up to age, poor radio stations, being too busy to browse record stores all afternoon, or not hanging out with other music-loving people.
This, among many reasons, is why we all need young, music-loving friends who live in other cities, in far-off places that play music that we wouldn’t ordinarily hear.
Today, Scilla (thank you! thank you!) sent me this video. If you need me, I’ll be here, playing this song over and over and over, dancing in my chair, thinking about how luck—and friendship—finds you when you least expect it.
If you like, there’s an English cover version here:
Your luck will find you
Wherever you may choose to roam.
Suddenly it smells like home.
Your luck will find you.
One day you’ll know who you are.
One day you’ll know where you belong.
