It’s a bright 28th day of October here in New Jersey. The temperature is mild with a minor cut of chill– 50 degrees in the sun. But there is snow in tomorrow’s forecast! Now I’m excited. Abrupt transformation, utter change upon us in what seems like a moment. We never ask for this change, but receive in kind, in time.

In his book Vectors, James Richardson—great poet and aphorist—teaches us something wonderful. “During the hottest months, the sun is moving away from us, during the coldest, coming back.” Sigh . . . yea. And it goes, and it goes.

I was challenged by my long-time friend and musical counterpart— Heliopath—to post my “top 5” on a monthly basis. I love the idea. And here is what’s at the top of the heap in the month of October.

1. Battles – Sundome (album version)     (instrumental)  or (live)
2. Victory at Sea – Animal and the Weather
3. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings – How Do I Let a Good Man Down?
4. Metal Fingers – Sumac Berries
5. Eleanor Friedberger – Roosevelt Island
