Song of the Variable Time-Unit #1

“Song of the Variable Time-Unit,” because I can’t commit to a “Song of the Week,” let alone a “Song of the Day.”

This particular song (Norah Jones’ “Sinking Soon”), because I was just driving through New Orleans with this playing on my stereo, and it’s a very New Orleansy song.

For the past couple of months I’ve been without a working internet connection at home, a deprivation which has been like pouring a bottle of molasses into the gears of my life.

P.S. – Happy Abolish-the-Presidency Day!
