Song of the Day, February 5: Flicker by Kathryn Williams

Today’s song is Flicker by Kathryn Williams. This beautiful tune from her 2000 album Little Black Numbers is one of her finest. It’s a quiet meditation on the transience of life, with a clear message to focus on things that matter. With neat irony, she observes the ways we speed from one inconsequence to another while failing to appreciate more important occupations.

I keep my time saved in a box
From going fast in cars
I’ve piled it up high
From saying hello to friends with a quick goodbye

There’s not enough time
In one life for one man
Just a flicker and then a breeze

Enjoy this wonderful song and then find something beautiful to do today.
