Slow Start to this Slowblogging Business …

(via Bob Butler, of Twin Kittens + Public Image Photography)

I wanted to give Slowblog some launch love today, but the desire for quiet was displaced by a hectic agenda and, now, the pull of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” a couch with Marta and a cold glass of Sweetwater.

So, a few stories and a few songs that were on my radar today, in my stead:
