Don't mean to get all gloomy on you, but this is pretty much how November makes me feel...
"November has tied me
To an old dead tree
Get word to April
To rescue me..." (Tom Waits)
The Hubster cranks this tune without fail every November 1st - today was no exception. :) I used to hate it, but now the sound of that saw at the beginning makes me smile.
We have a soft spot for Tom in our house - the following was the 'first dance' song at our wedding, and I include it here in case you think Tom is nothing but weird, gloomy, wackadoodle music (which 80% of it is...). This one is the perfect wedding dance song - simple, heartfelt, and blessedly short - oh, and completely true! xo
