It's time for a new exhibit in the Museum of Me and this month we…
Hello and welcome to a new exhibit in the Museum of Me. This month, the curators have asked us to put together a soundtrack for a day in my life.
Sounds easy enough, right? I mean, music plays a pretty big role in my life. I’ve always listened to music, from the stuff my parents listened to on our stereo at home (it was a big piece of furniture in our living room with speakers that also played in our kitchen) to 8 tracks in the car to my own little record player in my bedroom. I got my own stereo system as a gift for my 12th birthday and have been playing my own favorites ever since. It’s an . . . eclectic . . . blend, with plenty of oldies and standards, a smattering of country, lots of folk and even some classical.
All of which is to say that I don’t really have a soundtrack for a day in my life. But I do have several playlists on Spotify to address the . . . moods of my life. My page is here and I’ve got several public playlists and I encourage you to take a look if you’re so inclined. As a tutorial, I will tell you that Carole’s Favorites is (you may have already guess this) my favorites right now. It changes frequently as songs fall in and out of favor or feel more (or less) relevant in my life. Current Favorites is the list of songs that Dale and I listen to most. There are also themed playlists like Camping, Maine!, Nashville Cats and more.
You wouldn’t think that sharing my playlists would trigger feelings of vulnerability . . . but it does. Beause, really, the music we listen to reveals a lot about us. It’s not just about our taste in music, it’s about our hopes and dreams, our personalities, our empathy, and more. I’d love to hear what you think about some of my musical choices and whether or not you find the music I love to reflect to who you think I am.
That’s for coming to this month’s exhibit. I hope you’ve enjoyed it.
