Let me start by saying, I hate winter. You’d think a writer wouldn’t mind being cooped up inside by foul weather…able to write without distraction. It was good for a month or so. Now, I long to feel something other than snow or a bitter wind on my cheeks. My muse wants sunshine and warmth.
In an effort to trick myself into forgetting what’s just outside my office window, I’ve begun playing the summer vacation music of my youth … the Beach Boys, the Four Seasons, Elvis. (Yes, I am that old.) With any luck, spring will arrive before I’ve reverted backward even further to the likes of Sinatra, Bennett, or…heaven help me…Perry Como. (I do admit…I have a soft spot for Hot Diggity.)
