There are round rocks rolling in a cave
under my right collarbone.                   
I'm lifting boxes in the basement          
as they sing to eachother,                      
touching and rolling and touching        
and rolling away.

Saturday morning gloriousness, dripping leaves, soft warm rain and morning tea amidst the early morning market shoppers. After a week of stress and exhaustion, there's nothing quite like a house full of big hearts, food, and laughter to bring a much-needed freedom and peacefulness.
On the music front, the big news is about our new Revels CD, recorded this last spring. It will be released October 12th, but you can pre-order from Amazon or Revels Inc.

On the book front, I met Johnathan Franzen this last week and am enthusiastically diving into The Corrections while I wait for Freedom to arrive in the mail.

As fall sets in, the prevalent mood has been of Nick Drake, rainy bike rides (so incredibly refreshing!), and an achy, poetic meditative quiet. Work is hard, rest is deep, and the passion for life grows somehow ever stronger.

Work work work and sleep. Now I'm actually employed, posting on blogs is going to have to take a back seat. I'm thinking every Saturday, though, I'll try to get on here, even if just for a brief note. Above, Toast's new fall catalogue - haunting and delicious as always.
Coming up: Johnathan Frazen at Powells this Thursday!
Sounds of today: hearing these guys tonight at MFNW
