I think we can all agree that Spring is finally here. People are beginning to go outside again, windows are open, trees are budding and birds are singing. When I started thinking of something “Springy” to write about, Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, filled with hope and nostalgia and bird songs, felt all kinds of right.
So in the middle of January, I had a tough case of the winter blues, and I asked my facebook friends to help me crowdsource a playlist of “comfort food in musical form” and boy did they deliver. When all was said and done, I ended up with 17 hours worth of beautiful, thoughtful, and hugely varied selections.
