Systems Breakdown

My body wants to be anywhere else except in this chair this morning. My brain wants to slow things down, tamp the furnaces down to maintenance level to check the fittings and to repair deteriorated components. The past ten days of anxiety about my mother, and the accompanying increase in activity required to help care for her, seem to have taken a toll. I cannot type except slowly and with great effort; the same holds for writing. So I’m taking a day mostly for me.

So here’s a tune to mellow out the day. As long-time readers might suspect, it’s a performance by Al Hirt. Taken from 1963’s Honey in the Horn, here’s “Night Theme”

I’ll see you tomorrow, I hope.
