I’ve Been Waiting for This Moment


Somebody on one of my social networks recently mentioned that they were experiencing the “Nighttime Blues”, an overpowering feeling of unfulfillment which sends them crawling over the internet searching for that certain “something”, something they can’t identify. This reminded me that I began to recognize my own “nocturnal ennui” in the mid-1980s with (of all things) a commercial for Michelob beer, set to the song “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins. Glittery Manhattan skyscrapers, sexy 80s women, darkened clubs with live music, people on the street, steamy sewer grates…. all I knew is that I needed to be in the car driving somewhere. Sometimes I still do.
