Jesse and the Cool

Oh my goodness….it was hot today.

Not “middle of the desert” kind of hot….people who live in really hot places would laugh at me if I said it was hot in the mountains of North Carolina.

It was just a lot hotter than usual.

I was driving around in the heat and this song came to mind….by the late songwriter, Jesse Winchester.

Must be something subliminal floating around up there…..the cool, blue North and some good winter imagery from a Southern transplant.

It’s funny how our heads work.

It’s funny how my head works….not very predictable that I’d be thinking about a song about Winter when it’s burning hot outside.

Anyway…it was hot outside today….and I was outside in it….driving the mail jeep to deliver catalogs and packages.

I guess that it was as good a day as any to have a winter song looping through my head.

It couldn’t hurt to think about someplace cool.
