Merry Christmas from OFB

Among his collection of seasonal songs on ‘James Taylor at Christmas,’ Taylor covers Joni Mitchell’s classic ‘The River.’ It’s a lament of lost love, and its narrator expresses a longing for the care-free serenity of a frozen river, for skating:

Oh I wish I had a river

I could skate away on


I wish I had a river so long

I would teach my feet to fly

Oh I wish I had a river

I could skate away on


We at OFB wish all of you only the prosperity of love and all the joys of the season, and if you’re fortunate enough to have as well a frozen river nearby, skate it for us.
