The finest hour that I have seen ....

Typed fingers to the bone yesterday on a longer-term project, so didn't get around to thinking much about anything appropriate to write about today, on the occasion of another birthday --- gratefully acknowledged.

So I rounded up the snapshot at left, taken after I'd been around a little while, on the front porch of Granddad's house out by Williamson Pond.

And a little background music  --- on CD. 

Here, courtesy of YouTube, is the lead song from Nanci Griffith's 1993 "Other Voices, Other Rooms," with a little harmony by Emmylou. 

The album featured pieces by other songwriters who had influenced Griffith's career, in this case Kate Wolf.

Too melancholy? Not at all.

"The finest hour that I have seen
Is the one that comes between
The edge of night and the break of day
It's when the darkness rolls away."

Indeed it is.
