The skating rink at Millennium Park opens in just two days.
Each year, I keep a special "skate" playlist of music on my iPod. Usually, it's a combination of slow, languid music alternating with hard, fast rock; An oboe adagio followed by Heart's Barracuda.
This year, it's simply Handel's Messiah and Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
What more would anyone need?
I love Winter . . .
