Yesterday I woke to sad news. Sure, I'm going to miss Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court, but I'm talking about the loss of Luther Vandross. It's not that I even have the complete collection of his music or anything, it's just ...well, his music really touched me. It must have been the time period ... it was a mainstay of Jr High dances and house parties. Slow dancing to Luther while struggling with adolescence, growing pains, emerging independence.
Part of the soundtrack of my life. The part that made it a little bit nicer.

Put on some Luther, open a bottle of wine, and get a babysitter :)
