February 21 — SAY IT (OVER AND OVER AGAIN), John Coltrane Quartet (1963)

Luke was admiring the new thank-you cards he and Lauren had made for his upcoming birthday party. “I want them to say, ‘Thank you for the lovely gift. It really made me feel loved. I’m glad you could come to my party. I hope you feel loved, too.'”

Two hours earlier, on my morning walk with our dog Charlie, I listened to an interview with Lucinda Williams, who said her dad, a writer and poet, loved John Coltrane’s “Ballads” album. Love is surely in the air.
