I remember listening to “This is the Sea” while I pounded out poems on the Smith-Corona manual typewriter my parents gave me for graduation. The poems were fairly awful, but just part of the path.
And of course, these evoke memories of Swifty, my dear departed English friend. The first and only time I saw the Waterboys live it was with Swifty. Wrote about it in Coop.
