I hate “Taps.” I hate the way the song makes me feel, and I hate that this lovely piece of music is forever linked with death. I even wrote a Sunday Brunch piece about it, as part of a tribute to a recently departed friend.
Today, though, I rambled about “Taps” in a new way – I associated it with the E. B. White children’s novel The Trumpet of the Swan.
