musical interlude

In the tradition of some dear old friends, I have been getting together my list of favourite songs from 2013, not necessarily from 2013 (although the majority are), just those enjoyed this past year. I love this process; thinking back over the year, remembering, associating tunes and times, planning how the songs all work together. Hope you find some new music loves. I am particularly partial to the last two tunes, very fun party tunes, I dare to to try and not dance around the lounge room to those two numbers.

Yesterday on the solstice, we burnt some sage, cleansed our home and put out an intention of love and lightness, beginning the process of letting the year go and starting to look forward to the year ahead.
This is short and sweet as I head into a day of last minute sewing and relish/muesli/biscotti and pickle making. Hope you all have a delightful festive season in the close embraces of those you love dearly, cherishing the friendship of loved ones and sitting and being in the moment. Oh and eating lots of delicious goodness.
