The Winter of Our Contentment

Man, what a winter it has been. The finest in a long time. This year, Heather and I stared that behemoth known as Seasonal Affective Disorder in its squiggly green eye and made it clear he was not welcome in our tiny but overpriced Shangri-La.

Keeping busy was the key. If the blog has been mostly dormant, it's because I was rearranging the living room, alphabetizing my records or hanging tin signs above the kitchen cabinets. I spent less time on Facebook, and more time reading real books. I listened to music. I wrote music. Heather found a Keurig in perfect condition at a thrift shop for next to nothing. We are over-caffeinated and happy.

I made a lot of wonderful pop culture discoveries this winter, and I am going to share them with you, one post at a time. Until then...
