I’m listening to Vince Guaraldi play his signature piano music that goes with the Charlie Brown television specials….old familiar songs played simply on piano with a bass and drum. Nice and spare, and each song languishes just long enough to feel supple and supine at once.
We’re planning a Christmas party…which desserts and appetizers to make. Rolled up tortillas with sliced ham and cream cheese? Meatballs? YES. This music makes me relax and I enjoy planning our party, as the RSVPs roll in from the posting on Facebook and the email.
It feels like I haven’t had a party like this for a long time. I used to always talk about a holiday party but the idea would bounce off my partner’s ears and we wouldn’t do it. But this year. Yes, we can.
