A Bonus Present!
Maybe it's wacky, but I *LIKE* letting music manipulate my moods. Back in my college days I had "Driving to Work" music, "Working Out" music, "Writing" music, "Being Angry" music, "Getting Pumped Up" music, etc. I liked that if I needed to be in a creative mood instead of having to "reach right down to the bottom of my soul, to see what I could feel"* I could cheat by just popping in some music to take me there.
Last night I listened to this new CD in bed while going to sleep. It made me sleepy, and I think my dreams had a soundtrack last night. I must make a goal to listen to music more often.
*Whoever can tell me what that line was from will get a present. Excluding You, who knows it's one of my favorite lines.
