I have been somewhat remiss in updating over the last month. Life and work just get away from you sometimes. Anyway here are a few new items.
  • Screen capI got a note the other day from someone who used one of my old wallpapers. I have not made any new ones for a while but I've added a couple of new ones that are inspired by the new CD. How retro!!
  • There's a half-hour show on BYUtv called "The Song that Changed My Life" that recently featured Dar Williams. It offers some great insight into Dar's career, as well as a glimpse of her home and family. And the videography is quite delightful.
  • Dar wrote a blog post on Huffington Post about bee gardens.
  • Dar's also put together a new video for "As Cool As I Am" supporting woman's women's rights.  I will not be afraid of women! It's quite moving!
