Reading, Listening, Watching

Yesterday I completed my choice of artists to nominate for a Creative Commons music award. I heard a lot of good music in the process, in addition to learning some heart-breaking stories.

I worked solid days on Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday night we watched the Chicago Med/Chicago Fire/Chicago PD shows. I've been enjoying the current novel I am reading, Helen Kitson's "The Last Words of Madeleine Anderson."  I'm nearly half-way through, after some nine sessions with the novel. I like that the bookmark function of ereader software lets me keep up with how many bursts of reading each book involved.

Meanwhile, I  graze through chess books on the Old Indian and Dutch Defenses. I go to internet sites to follow the latest post-election news. I took a good picture of a Yellow-Rumped Warbler. I never tire of this bird, though it is somewhere between common and abundant in Winter here.
