PLAYLIST FOR “NOSTALGIA NIGHT” (11.18.17)

18 Nov

I thought about the good old days this week, when I was smart and my phone was dumb, when a blue state was me having a bad day, and when Harvey was a six-foot invisible rabbit you really wanted to see and not a creep you never want to see again. We can’t live in the past, but I don’t mind an occasional visit.
