If we go, go insane
We can all go together
In this wild, wanton world
We can all break down together
-- D.W. Suite, Lindsey Buckingham, Go Insane, 1984
(D.W. = Dennis Wilson, a tribute song from Buckingham to the then recently deceased Beach Boys drummer)
That's a song we can all relate to this time of year. Spring is about to spring. Persephone is coming back and, here in Cicely, the ice is groaning, about to break with the exquisite and deafening roar. It's time for madness, a time for our fangs to come down and our eyes to glaze over so that the beast in us can sing with unmitigated joy. Oh yes, ecstasy, I welcome thee!
