Happy Lughnasadh! It’s a little late, but this is another turn of the wheel of the year. Today we celebrate where we’ve gotten to so far this year. (And if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, Happy Imbolc!)
So, have a seat, take a breath, center in your self, and think about where you’ve been so far this year. Think all the way back to January- where were you then? Where are you now? What growth have you stepped into? What have you changed about yourself or your life? What are you grateful for today that you didn’t even know about in January? I hope it’s a happy celebration.
In honor of that, I’m sharing a list of songs that have been keeping me company this summer. It’s not a playlist, per se, because it’s not at all curated, it doesn’t send me any particular place, it’s just what I’ve been humming to on the radio and Pandora for the last few weeks.
If I Didn’t Know Any Better | Alison Krauss & Union Station
Witness | Sarah McLachlan
All That You Have Is Your Soul | Tracy Chapman
Tennessee Whiskey | Chris Stapleton
All At Once | The Fray
Endless Summer Nights | Richard Marx
The Next Time I Fall | Peter Cetera + Amy Grant
Meet Me Half Way | Kenny Loggins
On My Own | Patti LaBelle ft. Michael McDonald
Make Me Lose Control | Eric Carmen
I’ll Be Over You | Toto ft. Michael McDonald
I guess I’ve got a thing for Michael McDonald? Anyway, these have just been fun to listen to (some of them more bittersweet, which is my favorite emotion). The summer is definitely starting to wind down- I can already see the changes starting to slowly add up. But we still have our big summer trip to come and that’s going to be lots of fun. I’ll post pictures, I promise.
In any case, enjoy the music, celebrate your life and all that you’ve made happen so far this year, and love what’s left of this season.
