If the fates allow

December 22nd, 2017

I’m not a big fan of Christmas music, but Judy Garland’s rendition of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” from Meet Me in St. Louis is my favorite of the lot. The optimistic wistfulness of it — couched in Gilded Age nostalgia but informed by contemporary wartime anxieties — gives it a weary warmth that feels especially appropriate today.

See you after the holidays. May you muddle through somehow.
