"You're thinking of the happiest things in your life,
the moments that made it all worth it.
Think of them now."
Put on some headphones, sit back, and have a (virtual) cup of tea with Sylvie.
Reliving her happiest memories with the click of a cassette tape. Sylvie opens up a world familiar to her, safe to her, and one that is simply too busy for another sip of tea. Amy Winehouse is her best friend, Michael Jackson isn’t a Christian, and Elvis Presley drove a bus yesterday. Peter will be back any minute now.
Hear the world through Sylvie’s ears: songs from a time long past, the hum of a busy high road, the static buzz of a blank television.
This piece, written by Rachel Horner, explores the eccentricities of getting older.
