Just A Story Without A Moral...

Remember how the world was supposed to end on December 21, 2012, according to the Mayan calendar?

Yeah, that was a pile of bull -- and I seem to recall skippy linking to an article that said as much before that day, but I'm lazy, so if it's there, it's there, if not, it's not. Anyway...

That was a Friday night, and I was driving a cab. I'd checked out a few CDs from the library, and had one on while I was working. It was Orphans: Bawlers, Brawlers and Bastards by Tom Waits. Around 11:15 PM -- you know, roughly forty-five minutes to Armageddon -- this tune came on...



Really, this was a pivot in my spiritual recovery, if not my life. I had screwed myself out of a good job the year before, gone six months unemployed, gone another six underemployed, and was just starting to put myself back together when I heard this...

If I was about to die as the world ended, I couldn't dream of a better way to go than listening to Tom Waits singing "Goodnight Irene." At the time, I was trying to piece my life -- hell, myself -- back together. But that night, I felt the first touch of certainty that I'd be okay.

Have a happy holiday...

You know what?


I love this time of year.

Part of it is the lights and decorations. Downtown Nashua does that very well. A bigger part of it is, well... the spirit of it all.

The giving part of that isn't quite as big for me as it should be, I confess. Maybe that's part of the reason I break down and cry when "The Little Drummer Boy" plays.

Still, I'm crazy for the old-school Christmas music. Guess I'm old, but still a cub.

Best Christmas Song Ever...

According to me, anyway...




I've heard countless versions of this tune. Many of them are quite good. But this one reigns supreme. I break down and cry every time I hear it.

Enjoy...
