(Video link.) A longtime reader of ‘the improvised life’ sent us this swell video as a New Year’s greeting:

“3 girls singing at a kitchen table, with empty cottage cheese containers providing the rhythm section”

It seems to us like a perfect, charming New Year’s reminder of just what we can do with the most ordinary of things, of the possibilities that lie in every moment.

(The three girls are members of Erato, a Swedish student vocal group.)
