Absence does make the heart grow fonder.  Just got back from a week's vacation in the mountains.  It was gloriously relaxing, just letting all the nonsense peel away and leaving it behind.  After the quiet, car radio, and bad restaurant sound, I sit tonight in appreciation.  What a joy to be home with my system and my music.  It seems like an extension to the vacation...the cherry on top.  Rhiannon Giddens, Ella Fitzgerald, Tom Verlaine, Elephant Revival, and currently Lee Morgan.  I'm happy!

Well, we have hurricane season approaching.  I will  hide out in Tennessee when they get here.  Of course, one missed us in Southern Florida, and went through Tennessee to New York from the Gulf of Mexico.  Time for a bike ride!  Bye
