The ministry of Linus and Lucy . . .
A decidedly non metaphysical blog coming up. It's been a tough day up at the hospital, it comes with the role of minister. Anyway I came home, pretty burnt out, flipped open up a beer (Greene King IPA) and put on some jazz - Bill Evans, Ahmad Jamal, John Coltrane with Red Garland. All good, all wonderful. Then, I don't know why, but I got the urge to listen to Vince Guaraldi's Charlie Brown Suite. OK, to some people it's not very sublime and deep music but Guaraldi had a knack of writing music that made you smile and see that, on balance, it is good to be alive. Now I know you probably haven't got this record (or any of his others) but, if you go the Vince Guaraldi website, the opening page plays a short version of Linus and Lucy. For those of you who loved (still love) Charlie Brown it will bring a smile to your face - a good way to end any day.
