    A Tribute To Everyday Life – UK Day In The Life Photographer

    A Tribute To Everyday Life

    (By Dan Turell – translated from Danish)

    I like everyday life

    The slow awakening to the familiar view

    Which is never so familiar after all

    The family’s at once confidant, yet strange faces,

    once you’re no longer sleepy

    The morning kisses

    The slam of the mail in the hallway

    The smell of coffee

    The ritual wanders to the corner store

    for milk, bread, the papers –

     

     

    I like everyday life

    Despite all it’s irritations

    The bus rattling down the street

    The birds chirping from their cage

    The old neighbour stopping by

    The kid who needs to be picked up from school just when you’re getting started

    The shopping list fixed in the jacket pocket

    With it’s regular demands of meat, potatoes, coffee and biscuits

    I like everyday life

    The daily order

    The letters that need to be written

    The rent collection

    The dishes

    Recognising you’re out of nappies or tape

    I like everyday life

    Not as opposed to partying, smoking weed and whoopee

    You need that

    With all it’s leftover cinders

    So much left unsaid and loosely implied, hanging in the air afterwards

    Like some kind of psychic hangover

    Only the morning coffee of everyday life can cure –

    Parties are fine! Make space for euphoria!

    Let the champagne flow!

    And then what happiness to lie down afterwards

    In the bed of ease and everyday life

    To the familiar, yet not so familiar

    same old view
