In the tradition of Thanksgiving, I want to put it out there.
I love my husband and the almost ten years that we have been together. We met young, and we have evolved; I could not be so happy without him. I look forward to the next fifty years together, traveling and having a merry time. He has expanded my tastes in food, and he patiently taught how to ski.
Thanks to my wonderful four legged fam for all the wet noses and furry head-butts.
My hereditary people fam aren’t too bad either; our wedding was met with such joy, love, and support. and wow, the cake was delicious.
Blessed be, Brother Otis. Although I only embeded the part of the festival that made me fall in love with Otis Redding, I recommend watching all three videos in the series; better yet, you should purchase the entire recorded performance. I have to give credit to VH1 for airing the entire recorded performance sometime in 1999-2000 which turned me on to Brother Otis.
I cannot think what my life would have been like without the music that I sing when I am pissed or happy. I have tried to include a good groove like a good mixed tape to put you in the right mood. This is a somewhat random pick of my favorites, but I cannot claim it is comprehensive in any sense of the word.
Split Open and Melt
I know I am leaving off a bunch (Billie Holiday, Grateful Dead, Erykah Badu, Laura Reed) as I am so bad at picking favorites.
Here’s to having a lovely, snowy winter. I am looking forward to lots of good, southeast skiing and plenty of fires in the fireplace.
