Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

Mix Tape of My Life: Something Old, New, and Onward


Usually, I really don’t need much of an excuse to post something with music in it. So, when The Daily Post’s recent writing prompt landed in my mailbox, it was right up my alley. Mix Tape, “…a musical playlist of songs that describe your life, including what you hope your future entails”, brought about the following response.

Definitely a fusion of styles and a range of genres represented in this handful of new and older works; even a couple from movies. Taken together, hopefully it’s a smattering of song that offers comment of its author looking forward to whatever lies ahead. Kept it to a number that’s workable, and familiar, for those who know me. 😉

    Michael, you do such a nice job with these music compilations. They are a lot of fun for you, and they reveal a lot about your personality. I like the last choice!
