like every break, my vacation from blogging has had moments when I've thought sweetly of being back 'home' for along with not posting, I haven't really kept up on the activities and musings of the people in my cyberhood. maybe a couple quick clicks here or there, but I haven't spent much time wandering the blogosphere...I hope everyone is having a lovely end of 2008! can you believe it's almost 2009! what a strange, strange trip 2008 has been.
although there's still a few things on the dance card, ever since reading e's post on her favorite christmas song, it got me thinking of my favorite holiday song. I never thought I had a favorite christmas song until I heard this program which aired on my local npr station on christmas day and I heard yolanda kondonassis version of the traditional american folk carol I wonder as I wander - I find it is simply perfect.
so in this last post for 2008, I have an end of the year query - what song would you identify as your perfect holiday song? or do you think the notion absurd?
since I'm talking about favorites, I'll end with two of my favorite snaps from this past week.
unfortunately I couldn't find a vid of yolanda playing I wonder as I wander, but I did find this version as transcribed by carlos salzedo,and performed by zeno alma - and played according to zeno "with an FX touch of Jimi Hendrix, Maestro De FX & the 4th Dimension.
see you next year!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
