Music Playlist for Changing Relationships

The story behind the need for this playlist in the first place is way too long (and very personal) so I will spare you. The short version is this. The combination of music represents the ending of the very best, most fulfilling, most love-filled 25 years of my life.

And even though I put together this CD in the first place for a very specific, very close group of dear friends…chosen family, really…I have found this group of songs really helpful in my therapy practice for several clients needing to grieve over the years.

The info about, and lyrics for, each song are available online (would have made this post way too long) and I hope if any of this music speaks to you (sings to you?) that you’ll research further.

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

  1. So sorry, I meant to get back to this comment way earlier.

    Thank you for liking and commenting on this and other posts. Nice to not feel like I’m sending my words into a complete vacuum. There’s a verse from an Anna Nalick song called Breathe, Just Breathe;

    Two AM and I’m still awake, writing a song
    If I get it all down on paper, its no longer
    Inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to
    And I feel like I’m naked in front of the crowd
    ‘Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
    And I know that you’ll use them, however you want to
