Under the deep sky that's squatting so close over us tonight
You'd think it was trying to hatch us
That's us this morning, hatched by clouds onto our morning commutes. The squatting clouds also meant no moon to see (which, come to think of it, is a bit of an unintended pun). Not as many cars on the road as usual, probably because it is a Friday in the peak of late summer holiday season. Otherwise, a very nondescript drive.
It would have been a one-tune drive in if I hadn't stopped for coffee, with George Harrison's nearly-twelve minute instrumental jam session Out of the Blue sending every part of me that could tap tapping. A seriously awesome electric jazz/blues/rock jam tune. However, the stop for coffee slowed things back down to a morning-worthy crawl. Not only was the corner Starbucks drive thru moving a bit slow this morning, but so was the music at this point. Jarrett and the team of Ritenour/Grusin both offered up slow, quiet, gentle tunes. Just to keep the mix mixed, though, the iPod tossed some very up-tempo Pinback at me as I drove onto campus. A very satisfying mix of the sort that likely only comes from a random shuffle.
