Sweet Cave, Sweet Music
I'm still in a sweet cave of reflecting on the year behind and tilling the emotional-spiritual soil so I can plant things for the year to come.
I also have about ten projects in the fire, so part of my cave is pulling back and creating creating creating.
While I used to listen to tons of singer-songwriter kinds of music when I worked, lately I'm listening to a lot of sweet things, mostly instrumental, as they help as a kind of white noise but they aren't usually very distracting.
I've used last.fm for years — it connects to iTunes and Spotify (and before that, my Windows Media Player) and tracks all the artists and songs I listen to. (I think my profile is public? You can look at it here, if you want to know more about my music tastes.) I just got my year-end report which said my most listened to album was Rise & Fall by the Sweeplings, and my most listened artist was Tori Amos (duh).
But in addition to that lovely music, I've really loved the few double-guitar solos that Jason Kertson has. Aside from everything else, that he's playing two guitars is really cool!
How's your January, beloveds? Are you in a sweet cave? Hope you are warm and cocooned and snuggled.
