02/05/20 Share some love and some music

I woke up this morning with sleep in my eyes, and a pain in my chest. Another shit day ahead I thought to myself, well at least I am not coughing my guts up I suppose. I pulled myself together, went to the bathroom and got washed and dressed (routine is everything). I came downstairs and got mine and the dogs breakfast. I opened the curtains and let the day stream into the house, and what a gorgeous day it is. Then I thought…”so my head is spinning, my chest hurts and I feel sick, but look at that sunshine, today is going to be a good day, there is not a huge amount I can do about the symptoms, but I can chose to enjoy the sunshine and make the most of the day.”

As you know I love music, I keep banging on about it on my blog. I also love sharing my music with people. Back in the old days people use to make tapes and share them with each other. I don’t actually remember making a mixtape for my friends, but we use to share our albums with each other and make copies of them. It was always to share those gems you had found, although I think I always got more from these exchanges than my friends did.

In the spirit of sharing music this morning I put together a virtual mixtape for you to enjoy if you wish, in the form of a spotify playlist. If you don’t have spotify and want to play the songs by other means I have listed the songs below (even writing them down makes me smile). I hope you get as much enjoyment from the songs as I do.

  • Bamako by Songhoy Blues
  • This Love Starved Heart of Mine by The Jaded Hearts Club
  • Ulysses by Vialetters
  • Island by Speakeasy
  • Texas Sun by Khruangbin
