My collaborator, Leslie Martel of swo8 Blues Jazz did the work. She 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.

It hasn’t been a memorable winter except for it being mostly warmer than usual with sudden patches of very cold weather. A little snow, a lot of rain. One day it’s springtime warm and the next? Zero and a lot lower than that. You think the climate is changing? Nah.

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

Before this longest yet, ironically, shortest (by the length of day) month is finished, I hope to have more winter photographs. It’s not that I love snow. I just want my seasons back where they belong.

Since Leslie ran her copy of this today, I thought I’d run this tomorrow. Wait, this IS tomorrow!

  1. really enjoyed your story photos and jazz music about the winter vortex storm. I will have to try very hard not to complain about our winter after watching that one and all you experienced. I struggle to imagine how a home flooded by broken pipes in that sort of winter could be cleaned and rehabilitated

    what a bird the red cardinal is..


  2. Again?, only a short while ago, you posted this co-work and we commented on it. Or a blunder? Or has it such a strong reaction on you that you HAVE to repost it once again?
    Anyway, the video is great and I LOVED watching and listening (to) it again. It really evokes the best and worst of winter.
