"Peanuts" comic strip creator Charles M. Schulz has been in the news lately following the publication of a controversial new biography about his life (1922 - 2000).

When one thinks of Schulz and "Peanuts," the Vince Guaraldi tunes "Skating" and "Linus and Lucy" often come to mind. They were the music of the animated television specials that were inspired by the strip.

For this weekend's YouTube musical clip, below is "Skating" with images from The Rink at PPG Place in Downtown Pittsburgh. I thought it was particularly apt as the word "flurries" has begun to enter conversations this week.


Here's hoping there aren't many flurries this weekend as yours truly may be outside a few times during the Busted Halo Young Adults retreat. It's being held at the Mount Paul Retreat Center in Oak Ridge, New Jersey, tomorrow evening to Sunday afternoon.

Please keep all of us there in your prayers.
