Birthday post: no reflections, just music

I wanted to be witty and original today. I wanted to write about Russell Brand's recent slot as a guest-editor at The New Statesman and the brouhaha that ensued. That post should have actually come out tomorrow. But instead, I will celebrate my birthday today with just a beautiful and bluesy clip that says more about my zest for life than I could possibly summon up in a few paragraphs. I am that piano and keyboard at the beginning, I am Boz's soulful voice and I am his guitar. Have a great weekend!

  7. I'm sure that anyone who loves the blues has his heart tuned to the strings of the whole world.

    I began listening to the blues in my 30's while living in Florida and driving miles to work to Georgia, to a schoolhouse in the pits of hell. I saw and heard two things, all the time on that trip: blues and ramshackle shacks in the middle of nowhere, reminding me that conscience like a harvest, takes time to develop.

    I like that, when the music that is you begins, the crowd bursts into applause and whoops of appreciation. May you feel that way every day.

  30. Were I a more attentive blogger I'd have wished you a happy birthday last weekend! As it is it'll soon be December.
