I’ve had this in mind for a while now, and today – the first Earth Day in the time of he-who-shall-not-be-named (seriously, it’s a policy I just made up) – seemed like a good day to kick it off. Thoughtful Music for Troubled Times will be a semi-regular series of posts showcasing, well, pretty much just what it says on the tin. Some of my own, some from other artists.
