My mother used to say, "Why in the world do you listen to that mournful music?" but I listen to Early Music in the car all the time when I'm alon. I love it. What can I say? D and I went to see/hear Anonymous 4 many years ago when he still feigned interest in my enthusiasms, and it was a high point for me. I could rustle up another Early Music duo, Live Oak, which D and I went to see in a church outside Boston so long ago . . . a woman up front kept fussing with her purse. Her companion was impossibly old and immobile throughout her pawing. The purse began to move;
out popped a tiny dog's snout.
