I know… not Thursday. Sorry – yesterday was Release Day at $Dayjob. It was busy. Whaddayagonnado?
The theme this week is Catharsis. Sometimes you need some cathartic songs after Christmas in the same way you need to watch ALL the Hallmark Christmas movies *before* Christmas. In the next few days, Child returns to the military college. Twelfth Night is Monday. The Christmas tree comes down – all the more melancholy because this is the last year of real trees. For 47 Christmases, there have been trees made of tree. Next year there will be a pretend tree that is more schedule- and allergy- friendly. But it’s still the end of an era.
Happy New Year, friends. May the catharsis lead to good things for all of us.
