I’ve been listening my way through the Stax/Volt Complete Singles box set. I had a copy for a while right after I graduated from college and it always hit me right in the solar plexus. It’s doing it again today, even more so than ever. It’s a weird, warm, partly cloudy spring-like day, and I’m sitting on the sun porch as I write this, Squeek and Baby at me feet. I’ve crossed most everything off my list and am moving into evening with a slight feeling of accomplishment and contentment. I need to have music playing all the time, or else something feels off. It’s not easy coping with this president elect, but I’m coming around.
