The lyric is from Holly Cole's 'Make It Go Away Or Make It Better'. It's the song my girly-friend Mig and I sing to each other on the phone when one of us is going through something hard. We change the words to 'I will be the angel...'. It's pretty nice to come home to that sung with abandon into your voicemail box when you're blue.
I love peeking at what's in someone else's bookshelf. Says a lot. If you're into sketchbooks and sketching (and you must be or you wouldn't be reading this blog) check out The Doyle Diary by Charles Altamont Doyle. It's Sir Conan Doyle's father's sketchbook journal, unearthed in recent years. He created it while in an insane asylum. Doesn't make much sense, but it's fascinating, and the sketches are lovely. I picked up this old copy at The Book Shop in Penticton.
Sorry Mr Doyle, but it all looks a bit crazy to me.
