What's With The Music?
I thought I would give a brief explanation. I change the music a lot on our blog. Usually it conincides with my general feelings at the time. Sometimes I just throw in some favorites of mine. Right now, as you can probably tell, we are maxed out on stress, emotions, fatigue and worry. As a result, I want to surround myself with things that are comfortable--good friends, good food--comfort food like mashed potatoes & pot roast-guess what's for dinner?; and music that soothes the soul. Hymns for me hold a special place in my heart. My childhood was stable and peaceful, and I have great memories of church and the classic hymns are a sound track for a lot of my memories. As a result, the truth in their words and the peace of the familiar melodies bring me comfort in a situation that is incredibly uncomfortable. As I work, I usually have my blog open in a window so that I can listen to my playlist. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do. I also added a couple of songs by the Eagles and by Simon & Garfunkel, just because I like them :)
