Watch “Gloomy Sunday – Billie Holiday” on YouTube

I’ve never been a fan of Sunday – it seems most of the world is caught in obligations to attend church, prepare food and go back to work on Monday. I have appreciated Sunday evenings b/c I rarely had to work during that time and it seemed like a good opportunity to simply rest – eat a simple dinner and watch 60 Minutes perhaps. I used to watch Sunday am shows or listen to NPR. That was nice. For a brief spell I had the NYT delivered on Sundays which wad a real treat.

But gloomy seems more generally apt. A day of reckoning, both our spiritual selves and our homes, chores, tasks. And few enjoy that.
