Appreciation Today

For a wonderful lady

PJ Harvey

Polly Jean, has been a companion on the road of music with me since her album Dry (in the early 90’s) The woman’s vocal range and her emotional strength that come from her songs is mind blowing. Her Wiki

I’ve been playing her most of the day, since I managed to to get out of bed… (going to bed at dawn didn’t help) and having my fab Squeezebox with all her songs on it makes it so much easier and I can get on with other things too. Continue reading

Patti Smith by photographer Annie Leibovitz appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone in 1978
