I remember one Christmas Day in Maryborough, very hot and still. My mother and father underneath the house where it was cool, eating chilled prawns and cold ham and then, when Van Morrison’s song Have I Told You Lately that I Love You came on the radio, they danced slowly away from the table and clasped one another until it ended. At fourteen I found it unbearably uncomfortable.
