So on the same Europe trip with the metal-plate head hobbit I listened to a lot of Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park With George. Namely, I listened to a lot of “Finishing the Hat.” I’d usually turn it on whenever we were traveling somewhere. At the time I felt like the song had a sense of journey, of decision. Not that I was making any decisions besides where to eat dinner, but, you know. I mean, I certainly wasn’t making any decisions such as ART vs. LOVE. Still, great song, and it always reminds me of European Backpacking Summer 2009.
