Survival and mortality have been on my mind in recent days because of the unexpected passing of Nanci Griffith, followed by the news of Charlie Watts. He was 80; she was 68. The rest of us, right now, survive. Music remains its own sort of immortal presence, recorded music in particular. This strikes me as another reason to be listening to music from our culture's multifarious decades, which lends to your individual instance of humanity a breadth and depth that ongoing exposure to a limited range of musical expression can't yield. And what do we have going for us, as survivors, if not our own individual depth?
