The curse of the second hand

I’m into my 50s, each year seems to go by faster, and there just isn’t enough time to get all the things done that I want to get done – including developing meaningful relationships. For those reasons, as well as the fact that I continue to believe that Mark Heard was one of the greatest English-speaking songwriters of the 20th Century, the song “Nod Over Coffee” is as fresh as ever to me, 16 years after Heard’s death.

This YouTube clip starts out with a few seconds of a grainy video of Mark Heard and Pierce Pettis on stage at Cornerstone Music Festival 1992 (apparently minutes before his fatal heart attack).

The clip continues with Pierce Pettis performing the song at a tribute concert.
