Tick Tock Tuesday #34 (2nd June 2020)

This week for Tick Tock Tuesday I skip to the late 90s. What a brilliant time to be alive. Great music, a world full of promise and possibility—let’s face it, social media was yet to infiltrate our lives. And, though I didn’t fully realise it, at that time I was on the precipice, gearing up to make a huge leap from an insular world to a new life of freedom.

I was living in a country town in the state of Victoria, working for a fundamental Christian organisation. Although in my late 20s, I was still heavily involved with the religious trappings of my childhood. However, I did choose to jettison some…um, rather restrictive rules…which, if followed would’ve prevented me from enjoying the necessary elements of any self-respecting person’s navigation of early adulthood. If you know what I mean. πŸ™‚

This song always takes me back to those days. In my memory, the sun is always shining, the weather always temperate, and me, happy. The reality was probably quite different, especially given my delusional romantic entanglement with a narcissist. But the song grows in meaning and truth as I age. So much gold in here.

  1. Wow! I was just getting hooked up with my wife then. I met her in ’98 and we got married (and had a baby) in ’99. Happy days – especially ’97 πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†. Not heard the music before, but I was quite selective by then, Mainly I bought compilations and if I liked a track I would go looking for more.
