One of my favorite songs of all time is "Swing Swing Swing Swing" orchestrated by Benny Goodman. While driving to work yesterday I heard a radio show about how he used to live in Connecticut and walk around his town meeting with locals, playing chess with members of the fire department, and relaxing with everyday people. He was buried in Stamford, Connecticut, a few towns west from where I teach and live.
I post this on a Saturday to add some rhythm to the day. With it, I hope you find pep in your step, too.
