Monday Song

Dire Straits – tunnel of love

From the album “making movies” (1980) which was this British band’s third studio album.

It’s again a long(er) song, but one I enjoy a lot.


It is November. It is Monday. It is very early in the morning. It is raining. And it is cold. That’s what it is. Today is a holiday over here. We gather at the cemetery where a ceremony is held. It’s the first time in years that I can’t be there because I need to work. I did not dare to tell family yet that I will not be there. I am the black sheep as it is, skipping this event is unthinkable. And who has to work on a Holiday anyway?! Well, I do. That’s part of the job description of working in a home for teen moms. We are there 24/7, 365 days/year. And I actually don’t complain. Shifts like this are great. They are not as stressful as other shifts. And I will be alone at the office which means that I don’t need to wear my mask. I am tired though. Fourth of five consecutive early shifts… Let’s do this! Lots of love from me to you.
