I miss mix tapes.

I love my iPod – I really do. It’s a miracle of technology that allows me to have all the music I want, wherever I want, and listen to it whenever I want. But, sometimes, like our lives these days, it can be too much. There are just too many choices. Too much information – not enough time. I miss the mix tape. It was a simpler, and yet somehow more intricate proposition. You chose the songs, or perhaps, the songs chose you. Either way, they were collected together, put down on tape, and then experienced. A mix tape told a story. It was a commitment – even if you didn’t realize what it was a commitment to.

Are you listening to your life?

When was the last time you really listened to what was going on around you?  As I was leaving the office yesterday, I noticed, for what seemed like the first time, that we have music playing in our elevators.  I was a bit surprised that this came as a revelation to me.  After all, I love music – even play a little on occasion – and I had completely missed the sounds around me.  Why was that?
