By Shannon Lang. That insight springs into a series of essays on the virtue, gift and discipline of secrecy—of not making a scene of ourselves, of allowing ourselves to be simply part of something larger. A much less transformative but similarly knowing book I read recently is The Lager Queen of Minnesota.
I heard it praised as an homage to the Midwest, and that sounded pretty good to me. And it is quite good—keenly insightful about how midwestern relationships work, even when those relationships proceed without contact over the course of decades.
A new record by the Avett Brothers, the debut album Robert Pete Williams - Letter From The Penitentiary (Vinyl) the Americana supergroup the Highwomen, a three-disc concept album by Sleeping at Last, and the thirtieth-anniversary reissue of one of the most personally significant records of my life. Shawn Colvin is what might be called a folk music superstar. My pastor and I figured out that we were probably at the same Shawn Colvin concert in the student activity center at Northwestern University in the early s.
Steady On would become the Grammy winner for best contemporary folk album of How she won two years after the fact is beyond me. Or however the technology works. It occurs to me as I write this that this CD, still in my possession, is older than at least one of my coworkers. In the past that would have sent me into a fetal position, but I seem to be coming to peace with my advanced age.

That would be the year I would turn fifty, and at the time fifty seemed to me about the oldest a person could get.
To speculate so far into the future seemed both pointless and irresistible. What would the world be like? What would I be like?
There were good reasons to wonder. When I was a kid, my society was enduring the aftermath of the abrupt end of a corrupt presidency. We were facing global tensions on several fronts; I read more than one library book about inter-continental ballistic missiles before I was ten. The Middle East was a powder keg. The economy was sputtering. There was Robert Pete Williams - Letter From The Penitentiary (Vinyl) music.
Sure, we had Barry Manilow to deal with, but we also had the Ramones. Sure, the rain had acid in it, but there was also this owl and this Native American guy actively appealing to us to give a hoot and not pollute.
There was a chance would be great. I think about the past differently than the future or the present. Even the lofty ambitions are right-sized by the passage of time.
