Monday Mixtape: Labor Day Party-in-a-Post

Each week, usually on Monday, I compile a metaphorical mixtape, a few "tracks" of art I discovered and just can't keep to myself.  You should know that tracks are loosely related by theme and very much influenced by whim.

This week I'm throwing you a Labor Day Party-in-a-post: pancake party (we have over 30 people coming for pancakes on Monday morning) and a sampler of Charlie Peacock's latest tunes!  Then, you can finish the long weekend with a crackling bon fire (or small, little-heat-as-possible patio fire).





Visit for more great media celebrating the upcoming release of his new album on October 2.  I had the privilege of hearing him perform In the Light (did you know that CP wrote it?) in a sort-of improv jam session the last time I was at Laity Lodge.  Absolutely heavenly.


"My idea for the lyric was to make it like something King David from the Old Testament would have sung if he were alive today. I wanted that sort of "I'm a scoundrel in need of redemption" feel to the story. I think I got it."

Before I go, I should tell you that I love to hear what poems, pictures, songs and reasonable words you are enjoying.  Please do stop by the comment box and share a bit with me.  

Hoping that you find your common days aflame  with good books, 
pictures, poems, songs, words and ideas!
