What are you listening to right now? I've got one ear in the past & one in the immediate present: this time it's Talking Heads, Rihanna’s latest, Björk, Andreya Triana & Sandy Denny -- 1969 to 2016.

Maybe I've been influenced by reading The Peripheral -- the muddy swirls of various time strands flowing side-by-side in the greater stream. You know the feeling: it's all water, the same but different. In my stub, the seed track was the Q-Burns remix of Youssou N'Dour's Wake Up, a swirl that found itself in the same flow as Sandy Denny, who slipped into the mix when I read a piece in which the author referred to himself as standing on a NYC street corner, under headphones, listening to Nina Simone sing “Who Knows Where the Time Goes”. That fired a synapse, sending me to YouTube to hear Nina, Judy Collins, DC's own Eva Cassidy & finally the song's composer, Sandy Denny -- her voice bringing an aching ultimacy to this song that no one else has equaled.

Listening, right now.
