Here I am at Highland Coffee, Louisville, Kentucky. I listen to "Ring of Fire" more-folky version than original. And I laugh...I remember an unnamed ex of mine (out of nowhere) breaking the ice upon meeting my just-senior brother: "'Ring of Fire'- you know that song, he had to be talkin' bout Herpes, right [or was it crabs]?" Wow!! I about lost it! He he. The Marshalls do NOT talk about, ponder (out loud) such things. At least, we did not then. Just a funny example.
'Tis the holiday season. Here's to more talking- about all kinds of matter- more baking, more laughing, crying, the like...more making and less buying. Looking forward to the first season back 'home' in thirteen years.
