"Fleetwood Mac, Todd, Bruce… God, I’m predictable." We’re thumbing through the vinyl at Shake It Records.

"How can you not already own Rumours? And don’t you already own that Todd album?”

"This is a better copy; I’ve never seen one with this insert before. Hey…"  I pluck a Charley Harper frog from the stacks. "This was in that auction we were just watching… I think it went for a lot more than 99 cents."

At home, “Your Song Is Mine” goes on repeat while I cook dinner. It echoes in our bare dining room; beyond the wall of glass the sky is still bright through the trees. J comes downstairs and hears this song, and says “this song is everything you’re about these days.”

"Isn’t it so local band in the 70s?” The sound of it makes me happy to be living in Ohio.

"What’s going to happen if you suddenly stop liking this stuff?"

What happens the moment we stop liking anything? On to the next thing. But for now…

(God it feels good to watch YouTube videos again.)
