My collaborator, Leslie Martel of swo8 Blues Jazz did the work. Composed the music and wrote the words. She also put the video together. Posted it to YouTube. I think that’s all the work. I merely supplied photographs.

This video is called Winter Blues, a unique, fun collaboration between me and composer-musician swo8 Blues Jazz.


It’s that time of year again and we’ve had our first blizzard. The forecast is for snow every day for the next six days, so I guess the season just got serious. This seems a good time to run this one again.


Before this longest yet, ironically, shortest month is finished, I expect to have many more winter photographs. But it will end. It always has. So far!

It’s sort of almost spring … right?

    Come on Marilyn, those are some amazing photos. The whole scene would be unbelievable without them.
    Our pipes actually did freeze one time when we returned from a vacation down south. I couldn’t help laughing when I recalled the children’s toys floating around in two feet of water in our basement.

    I definitely enjoyed the music. It was beautiful. The pictures just added an extra feel. Like Eddard Stark would say in Game of Thrones. Winter is coming. 😀

    On a side note speaking of Jazz, we are a start up travel company and we’re currently promoting the Borneo Jazz festival in Miri, Sarawak in East Malaysia from the 12-13th May 2017. We’ve got some dirt cheap – packages. Come jazz as you are! . Do check it out on our blog 🙂
