tuesday’s lullaby

From the time I was a little boy, I’ve always surrounded myself with a depth of musical genres.

Yesterday evening began with my spinning Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band’s Night Moves on the turntable while I prepared turkey tetrazzini and roasted asparagus for dinner. Bob’s album was the perfect appetizer. The music, dinner, and the company were all delicious.

Later in the evening I escaped to my office as I often do for some quality creative thinking time. The mood and music shifted. It was the perfect accent for the balance of the day. My playlist included Lyle Lovett’s I Love Everybody, Tony Bennett and k.d. Lang’s A Wonderful World, and Diana Krall’s The Girl in the Other Room. Again, delicious.

Hanging on to the last few remaining minutes of the day, I switched gears once again with Don McLean’s American Pie on LP. The entire album, but especially Vincent was the perfect lullaby as I sat in the yellow glow of the slow moving lava lamp. I love this quiet time of the night nearly as much as I love my music. It allows me to hear the world through the silence.
