Almost Cut My Hair

I was due to get my hair cut the week before lockdown began on 23 March.

As you can imagine, my hair is now completely out of control and here's a photo of how I look today. 

All of which reminded me of this old song from Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - 'Almost Cut My Hair'.


Almost Cut My Hair - Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

Almost cut my hair
Happened just the other day
It's gettin' kind of long
I could've said it was in my way

But I didn't and I wonder why
I feel like letting my freak flag fly
And I feel like I owe it, to someone, yeah

Must be because I had the flu this Christmas
And I'm not feeling up to par
And increases my paranoia
Like looking in my mirror and seeing a police car

But I'm not, I'm not giving in an inch to fear
'Cause I've promised myself this year
I feel oh, like I owe it, to someone

When I get myself together
I'm gonna get down in that sunny southern weather, yeah

I'm goin' find a space inside a laugh, yes
Separate the wheat from some chaff
I feel
Like I owe it, yeah, to someone

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow! (25/03/20)

I thought I would give my two girls a laugh the other day by sharing an old passport photo in which I sported lots of very curly hair.
