    “Nina Simone, everything”

    Sounds about right to me!

    Alice Smith is indeed lovely. Her album is fast becoming one of my favorites. She also has an endearing stage presence.

    Oh, and regarding your comment on the Heartache post, my only recommendation is for you to buy some sexy shoes. Really, it helps. Hang in there.
