A couple of weeks ago I saw elbow live in Melbourne.
Guy Garvey. Sigh.
His lyrics leave me in wonder. And in love with language, life and my Mr Right.
[and with Guy. Just a little... Shhh]
You are angels and drunks
You are magi
You stuck a pin in a map I was in
And you are the stars I navigate home by...
Dear Friends, Build a Rocket Boys! elbow 2011
You know you drive me up the wall
I need to see your face that's all
You little sod, I love your eyes
Be everything to me tonight...

As I left my office just now the first thing that caught my eye was a brief vignette.
A man, sitting on the footpath, shabbily dressed, holding a handwritten cardboard sign asking for money.
A man walking past, well dressed, swinging his Louis Vuitton briefcase, chatting on his iPhone.
Two very different worlds.
