A cloudless summer sky over Idaho.
A tune, a lament, a cry.
A true blue reader (you?) knows that music is now a constant undercurrent in the studio here. It colors my work, brightens my life.
Five years ago the studio sound system switched from news radio to music. The illnesses of my parents brought enough bad news into my life without corporate media adding to it. I turned to tunes.
Then there was a late summer storm in the Gulf of Mexico that put into peril the cultural font of the music that soothes my troubled mind. Then another.
Blue tarp blues.
It's been five years people.
There will be plenty of media hype this weekend, spinning as wildly as the storms themselves. Ignore the amalgamated gloss, but read one person's story. My recommendation is Jan Ramsey's blog.
Please do suggest others in the comments section. There must be millions.
Wishing you blue skies as we sail towards autumn...
