Welcome to November, and the constant and continual crescendo of holiday noise and infiltration into your daily lives until January 2.
I love Christmas music much more than your average person but for now I am happy to enjoy autumn and listen to some of my favorite fall tunes. Modest Mouse's the lonesome crowded west and songs by Sun Kil Moon have been in the music shuffle recently.
Here are some recent photos of one of my favorite places, Bartow-Pell Mansion in the Bronx!
