This is my first foray into Theme Thursday, which sounds like great fodder -- no, I meant to say "source of inspiration" -- for NaBloPoMo and future blogging as well.
Not being one to ponder the mysteries of life, what first came to my mind when I saw the theme was the mystery novel genre. I seldom read mystery or detective books, although tut-tut's clever take on the theme reminded me that in my childhood I read quite a few.
A few summers ago, my father suggested this series, and I read two or three:
Pleasant enough stuff, but nothing that drew me into the genre enough to want to discover new authors.
My second thought about "mystery," was, not surprisingly, music-related. The song "Mystery Dance" by Elvis Costello is not one of my favorites from his album "My Aim Is True," which otherwise I love dearly.
The image search for it led me into a strange time warp -- did that song really come out on a 45? The proof is in the picture.
