A Duck for You

Oh my land is like a wild goose
Wanders all around everywhere

--"A Song for You"

I woke up early this morning and lay thinking of things like "paradigm shifts" and "disruptive technologies" and just as my very soul was about to drain out of my ears, I thought gratefully of this picture and this moment. We saw these at the Arboretum with Chris when we were out in Seattle this summer, a vacation that, sadly, has gone unchronicled in these parts. So here are some ducks for a winter's day:

Meanwhile, I have been madly surfing the back pages of MP3 blog Little Hits where the songs of my college years are unearthed weekly, if not daily. If you are old enough to remember Big Dipper, Dreams So Real, the Windbreakers, Naked Raygun, and more forgotten garage rock and pop, or if you ever did college radio in the '80s and early '90s, or if you are of the age to have swooned over a mix cassette from that special someone, then run, don't walk, to listen.
