Joy Through Music

I meant to post this last week, but then things got busy, and then, with yesterday, a lot of the joy (and, thus, motivation) got sucked right out of me.

Before I get into this post, there are two points of business:   First, I’m happy to announce that Rochel, who commented “My least favorite room is the kitchen. However, I do enjoy the workout that cleaning it entails!” is the winner of the “Let My RV Go” novel giveaway.  Yay!  I’ve emailed you to… Continue reading What Makes Jewish Music “Jewish?”
