Another Unraveling Hem

Hold on, hold on to yourself…this is gonna hurt like hell. I posted this just under a year ago.  In light of Boston and Texas, it seems appropriate.  Songs convey emotion that words alone can not. Loss is universal and the pain reminds us all that we can hurt in ways we never knew possible.…

I did not know who Chet Baker was until yesterday.  I think I may have heard his name before, it is a unique name, but I couldn’t tell you who he was or what he did. I’m pretty sure every jazz fan, or anyone really acquainted with music for that matter, just hit the floor.…

Yellow Bedspread

Shocking Colors
