Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn

Did you feel a change in the atmosphere Tuesday? Like the world got a little better and colors were brighter and while life might still have been kicking your ass, at least it was wearing slippers instead of steel-toed boots? It’s on account of The Album. Mumford’s new one, DUH. They played some of thisContinue reading “Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn”

Little Talks. Lil’ bitty ones.

Full disclosure – when I give you a song, I don’t watch more than about 30 seconds of the music video. Mostly I just let it play in the background while I write about it. That is all.

I don’t make mixed CDs anymore,Continue reading “Playlist fo da summah”
