Today is gray and rainy in New York. Inches of snow are accumulating north and west of here. I am in a foreign land, and it is very exciting. I love the fast and the people and the pizza and the skyline.
But, today, for some reason, I am feeling really homesick. So I've been listening to "Midnight Train to Georgia" (Woo Woo!... you go, Pips), "That's Right" (by Lyle), Lynyrd Skynyrd v. Nelly (If you feel like dancing, listen to this), and "Crazy in Alabama" by Kate Campbell.
Some of these songs are kinda beautiful. Some of them are kinda sad. And some of them just make my hair stand on end... which is the way different representations of the South seem to work.
