So, stuff!

I was driving around in Alice, my WonderVan, this summer as I often do; Hello, alone time, while we were secretly going back and forth about the house. Inspections, meetings, banks etc … the whole ordeal and I finally knew all I needed to make a house a home was music.

I was missing music.

I remember calling Aaron and just saying – I don’t care any more. I need our crap out of storage and my speakers on the wall. I just need music.

Which felt like I was relieving the pressure for the first time. For a year living upstairs everything we did had an audience.

Exhale.

Privacy is a big deal to me, odd because so much of my life is online and available – which induces hiding and blah blah blah!

I want to be invisible. I want to escape.

Music makes me feel like I am, like I can. And apparently, makes a house a home too.

So, what are you listening to? What does music do for you?

  1. I know exactly what you mean! I go crazy if I can’t have my tunes going…to the point that I bring portable speakers when I’m staying in a hotel.

    I am loving Spotify lately. I just use the free version on my desktop and hook up our house speaker system. Since I have such weird taste in music, I can never find a radio station that I like – now I just create my own!

    (Spotify doesn’t not sponsor me in any way and I’ve never done any work with them – I just love creating free playlists and feel the need to tell everyone about them!)

  2. I love having the iPod playing in the house and the radio in the car. My kids love music too and are always up for a dance party when I hit “play.” Sometimes we listen to their tunes (Laurie Berkner, Frances England, praise songs, etc.) and sometimes we listen to mine (Adele, Ingrid Michaelson, Mat Kearney, Mumford & Sons, Coldplay, Girlyman, Brett Dennen, current Pop hits, a bit of Country here and there; whatever we’re in the mood for)! It definitely feels great in GR lately with the windows open and the music turned up!

  3. I have been using turntable.fm a lot lately at work – gives me a chance to chat with friends a couple of times a day, and we share music with one-another.

    Right now I’m listening to Acid Rain by the Liquid Tension Experiment.
