Jazz tenor saxophonist Ben Webster performs (with accompaniment) a wonderful version of the 1937 song "Where Are You?" on his Soulville release (1957).
This is my Friday Night Musical Interlude along with a brief update.
"Listen to the Music" by the Doobie Brothers, Toulouse Street release, 1972
This is a 1975 video and looks every bit of it. Sorry for the scrolling Japanese at the bottom at the beginning.
I just finished my laundry, made and ate dinner (and did the dishes), and thoroughly revised this entry. I revised the entry for reasons I do not particularly want to delve into in this public forum.
I will say that it is probably very nearly time for me to drop outright and for good the entire MH topic and everything and everyone associated with it. I think at this point the best thing is to leave the subject in the past with all the feelings and drama. True, I never actually left D.C. and started anew elsewhere, but now it is kind of immaterial.
Above: Photograph of Imara and me at the National Arboretum here in Washington, D.C., April 6, 2013 and that I wrote about in this entry. This was one of the pictures that Jake took with his excellent camera, but he only sent them to me this past week.
The view of the dome of the U.S. Capitol Building as seen from the top of the forested hill called "Mount Hamilton" in the National Arboretum about 3 miles away on April 6, 2013.
The trees actually bloomed "on time" this year rather than day / weeks ahead of schedule thanks to the lack of the now-usual excessive warmth -- hence they were bare in early April.
Lastly ... somehow this is appropriate ...
"If I Ever Lose My Faith in You" by Sting on his Ten Summoner's Tales release (1993)
I love the video, too, as it plays on Medieval English and Church imagery and Arthurian tales.
OK, that's all for now. I do intend to update this blog over the weekend, although I really would like to try to catch up on the backlog of entries / pictures I have.
