It's dark outside. All. The. Time. I am thankful that we only have 30 more days until the Solstice, so the sun will begin to make it's way back into our lives. If this time of year makes you a little crazy, like it does me, I recommend a little musical therapy.
KPLU is my favorite blues-buster right now, on these looooooong Winter weekend afternoons when I just don't want to move and it seems like the kids are running through an itemized list of complaints, and have it on repeat. Nothing seems to quiet them down than listening to professionals sing the blues.
On the weekends their schedule is all music, all afternoon (and most of the morning on Sundays). So if you're finding yourself feeling a bit low and less than productive right now, tune your radio to 88.5 and a feel a little bit better. (KPLU is a public radio station, based at least partially right here in Tacoma.)
