Be It Resolved I Don’t Have Resolutions Right Now

It's not only a new year it's also a brief period of time every newspaper, tweet, or Buzzfeed list has something on resolutions, or perhaps simple goal setting for the new year, or thinkpieces on resolving to not make resolutions for 2018 and doesn't that make the writer smart? I have entered a category not …

Music Monday: The Two Faces of January 1st

Spotify began as a free account for me, something I played on my computer before taking the plunge into a subscription. With limited space in my home, the site has allowed me to create playlists and to play some tracks repeatedly in the comfort of my headphones. If you want to get to know a …

Music Monday: Gabriel’s Message As Sung By Sting

Gabriel's Message, sometimes called 'The Angel Gabriel Came,' comes from a Basque folk song sung in churches during the Advent season.
