I’m behind. It’s summer, godAWFUL hot ‘n humid. Plus this week is Art Fair so my daily grind just got grindier.
I give you last night’s playlist: a jazz rotomontade. The preferred soundtrack for hot pavement-maneuvering through sweaty bodies and that moment cold water hits your face. Yesterday was also the anniversary of John Coltrane’s demise.
