And that was yesterday. / by Melanie Ida Chopko


Sometimes I call a jam and all my favorite musicians show up, show up on time. And we sing/musically zone out on the best of the New Moon canon: Lay Lady Lay, Rivers and Roads, I Can't Make You Love Me, some originals.  Sometimes I call a song that was my favorite in 12th grade, Yellow, and we jump on it, in full harmony, even hitting some weird add13 chord at the end. All while one roommate makes tamales, another lays secretly in the living room, listening, and the dog swoons on the floor.

And that was yesterday.
