Neko Case is Tariku’s main squeeze these days. He asks to hear her album at breakfast; he asks for it in the car; he asks if she can come to the park and he cries when the answer is no. He insists that he’ll be gentle and share his airplanes if only she’ll come over and visit us.
I thought I’d share a video of her singing our favorite song live. It gives me goosebumps to the tips of my ears. And I don’t think I’ve ever heard anything quite as sweet and sad as an almost-three-year-old singing along with the line, “I’m so lonely and I wish I was the moon tonight.”
