Autumnal Equinox

Here’s a mix of fourteen tracks for the equinox, about an hour of music, a mystical blend of jazz, electronica, a little hip-hop and some raging heavy metal (sorry Beth) including music by John Coltrane, Death Cab for Cutie and Heaven Shall Burn.

I kind of feel sorry for the autumnal equinox. Of all the four corners of the year, it seems to get the short shrift. It just doesn’t conjure the same excitement as the vernal equinox or either of the solstices. Not sure why.

When a certain theology professor wished me a happy equinox yesterday, I pointed out that he was about 30 hours early. He wondered how this was possible, and I pointed him to an old entry on this very blog. His reply?

I’ll just continue to mark the solstices and the equinoxes with the 21st. You’ll be the only person who will know that I’m living a lie, at least on some days.

So much for scholarly integrity! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go sacrifice a goat.
