The National - I Need My Girl

I watched this song performed on SNL on the weekend. It's beautiful. I can't get the sound out of my head. SNL is a spirit lifter. I'm reading Cockroach by Rawi Hage. The story is about immigration struggles in Canada. It was profiled at Canada Reads as one of the four books all Torontonians should read. I'm starting to see why. The struggles of newcomers are unique. The same is true of all minorities. I have cockroaches and one crawled on my book. After bed bugs, cockroaches don't scare me.  The irony of a cockroach crawling on a book called Cockroach made me laugh.  Life is funny - or maybe more ironic.
