quotation

Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly. ↔ Rose Franken

tune

I realized the other day that those who actually pay attention to my tune of the day must think that I listen to music solely of the indie rock persuasion. Not so, people. I also like jazz a great deal. Here’s one of my favorites – “Strange Meadowlark” by Dave Brubeck, who, incidentally, I was lucky enough to see in concert a few years back.

→ I had no idea John Sellers released his new book, The Old Man and the Swamp. I will definitely be picking it up soon and suggest you all do the same. I’ve had some personal contact with Mr. Sellers over the years and not only is he a great writer but he’s a quality individual as well.
