Random Discovery of the Day: Spring

I have a theory about the actual first day of Spring in Alberta: It isn’t the Spring Equinox in March as the calendar would have you believe – it’s the day you see your first robin of the year. For me, today is officially Spring, as evidenced by the four robins in my backyard. So, […]

Random Discovery of the Day: Observation

So, my car has started making a terrible death whinny of a squealing noise, which means I’m not driving it this week. (Cheaper to fix things that aren’t quite broken yet, and all.) I decided to walk to pick up dinner for the darling wife and I. A bit brisk, but still nice. Despite having […]

Hello World.

Addmittedly, I’m at a bit of a loss as to what I should muse about right now…¬†Perhaps I’ll leave it at a short explanation about my username. I went with “Epistrophies” for two reasons: 1) I love jazz. A lot. One of my favourite jazz artists is Thelonious Monk, who performed and composed the song¬†Epistrophy. […]
