Laura Veirs, “Magnetized”

One last love song for this week, and simply one of the prettiest songs I’ve ever heard.

Laura Veirs, “July Flame,” “I Can See Your Tracks”

Brooklyn is covered with snow, but I just met a friend at a nearby restaurant for a summery meal of lobster rolls served with piles of French fries and haricots verts. Then, walking home after lunch, I put on my iPod and listened to this summery song, which takes its name from a variety of peach. Peaches make me think of the greenmarket a mile from my house, where I shop every Saturday through every season but winter, and all of the anxiety that shopping at a greenmarket brings. (If I take too long eating breakfast and reading the paper, will all the strawberries be gone by the time I get there? What if I buy these peaches and then see better-looking peaches at another booth? Does the bi-color corn really taste that much different than the yellow corn?) It’s now almost 4:00. Around this time, the apartment starts to get dark, but the snow descending on the streets and piling up on the windowsills has filled the rooms with a warm yellow reflected light.

Also: Having a pet deer, it turns out, is not all that different from having a pet dog.
