Yeah, I’m Back (Song of the Day): Cats On Fire “A Few Empty Waves” and more

September 25, 2012


First of all, a lovely song listened to on a gorgeous, sunny Monday morning walk to work. . . So, work and all that. Maybe this? Or maybe this. Definitely this. But all these took me away from my lovely blog for quite a bit, didn’t they? Hence: . . Quote of the Day: Say […]
