Staying Connected Through Music
I am on the road this week, with stops in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Hood River, Portland and Seattle before I return home.
While work and family obligations are connecting me to all points of the country, I’ll be disconnected from one of my favorite parts of the week—the Bright Antenna team yoga class—as well as the team itself. Of course I like to pretend that said team misses me something awful when I’m not around (ha ha). So in my absence I asked everyone at Bright Antenna to submit a couple of songs that remind them of me for this week’s playlist. This way, I’ll still feel connected to the session even though I’m not there. “Interconnectedness is the nature of reality,” right? And few things make us feel more connected to ourselves, to each other, to our past, to our hopes and dreams, and to the world around us like music does.
This turned out to be an interesting and multi-faceted mix of tunes, with topics that range from gypsies to forces of nature to, ahem, oral sex! Regardless, the truth is I’m going to miss the BA team more than they’ll probably miss me this week.
Finally, in honor of Neil Armstrong’s passing last week and his adventurous, courageous spirit, please revisit last week’s playlist: Moonrise Yoga.
