Going Back To Tucson

I'm heading to Tucson next week for the Division of Planetary Sciences Meeting. Since I spent a big chunk of my 20s in Tucson between grad school and a postdoc job, I am naturally feeling a bit sentimental.

I wrote a lot of music during my time in Tucson, played in several bands, recorded The Red Album there as well as stuff on the ol' 4-track. The city even worked its way into the lyrics of at least one song.  So I thought I'd dash something off here to mark the upcoming trip.
