New Quote

And February was so long that it lasted into March
(Dar Williams, February from Mortal City)

Lying really. February is zooming by this year; I've been busy with the new office and exercise and mentoring and stuff. No seasonal depression or affective disorder here.

But I've always loved this song. I heard Dar play it live before The Honesty Room came out, and I was disappointed that it was not on her first release. It hit me at a particularly lonely time, somewhere in between a separation and a divorce. The verse about planting, forgetting bulbs, forgetting plants and "What's a Crocus?" - so beautiful and so where I was back then.

But Dar.....glad you made it kid. We were pulling for you all these years....
