The Songs of Summer: Not Today
I’m not posting anything for Songs of Summer today; it just doesn’t seem appropriate. There’s a whole lot of sadness in the world today. Tragedy and loss are part of life, I suppose, but with another senseless and violent episode of gun violence, as well as the sudden loss of a long-time friend of the family, it just doesn’t feel right to be doing something as trivial as celebrating summer songs. Music can heal, and music can bring people together, and sometimes, to me, it’s just about the only thing that can raise my spirits, and it will again, but just not today. OK? OK.
