In the Bleak Midwinter

This morning, a friend of mine posted on facebook that she’d been up since the wee hours wrapping presents and was feeling overwhelmed. Since she’s a Cancer (you people know how you are!) I didn’t even bother trying to tell her, “Well, then, just stop doing a bunch of stuff. Do one or two fun things and ignore the rest.” But it’s what we all do need to do, esp. at this time of year when the “overculture” bombards us with Martha-Stewart-messages that we aren’t “enough” if we don’t cut turnips into inkstamps and make our own wrapping paper out of genuine butcher block paper that matches our handmade Yule cards and the placemats at our holiday tables.

Here, just a few days before Yule, are some lovely versions of my favorite Winter songs. I hope that you’ll just stop and let the music wash over you.

For Heaven’s sake, it’s supposed to be fun.
