Thanks, Emily


Brian Wilson sits around on the park bench for hours in Hawthorne, California wearing a tee shirt that reads ASK ME ABOUT THE HAMBURGER STAND NOW.  Even though there are a number of people walking up and down the sidewalk, no one stops to ask Brian Wilson about the hamburger stand now. This is a different world than the one Brian Wilson once knew. In the world Brian Wilson knew, people loved to ask him about the hamburger stand now. In this world, people drive very slowly and ask questions less often and more often they are about God and the ocean and the end of things. In this world, Brian Wilson is sad, not happy, and his tee shirt fits him very snuggly, like the jerseys you see on bicycle riders who know that someday they will win important races in countries that sound familiar, but you might not really know.
