Oh hey! It's Vinyl Monday, again! Even though it's my lowest rated feature (I finally got around to checking out some stats), I'm going to stick with it. Music has always been and will continue to play an important part in my creative process, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who is inspired by a really great song or album.
I actually thought about giving up on Vinyl Mondays for a split second, and a little nugget of wisdom about staying true to myself found it's way into my subconscious and begged me to go on.
I woke up today and decided it was going to be a great day. I sat around in my pajamas listening to my favorite songs (which include just about anything by PAVEMENT) and eating yogurt with tons of cinnamon in it. I may or may not have danced around with a cat or two. I got a super long bubble bath which included tossing bubbles in the air and making a giant mess of the bathroom. When I got dressed I chose to wear as many colors as possible.
I had fun at home.
I had fun at work.
I'm having fun right now as I cook dinner and type this post.
Music plays an essential part in creating and sustaining a certain "mood", thus Vinyl Monday's importance and relevance.
What do you listen to for a "pick-me-up"?
