My cheap-o, re-furbished Ipod has to be one of my best buys ever! While sitting on a crowded, tiny plane bound for Burbank I pondered upon how much sweeter my travels have become since owning the darn thing. For one thing, I don't feel obligated to talk to or be talked to on a long or short flight (don't get me wrong, i'm a fan of airplane conversation, but on a 4 1/2 hour long flight it's a big commitment!)
The whole world changes when set to music. A cramped plane becomes a flood of memories, hopes and aspirations. You laugh, but it's true! My most creative thoughts come to play in these moments, and my goals come to life again (marathon!)
Here was the playlist for today's journey:
Michael Buble - Quando, Quando, Quando (reminds me of Shan & Caiti), You and I (this song makes me want to be in love)
Enya - Watermark (reminds me of my time in Russia - in my haven of a bedroom)
Ellen Degeneres stand-up comedy - hilarious! (this reminds me of being in the car with Shannon when hearing it for the first time and laughing so hard we were crying!)
Eva Cassidy - Songbird, I Know You By Heart, and My Baby Wrote Me a Letter (Heather & Matt first introduced me to Eva a few years ago, and wow, her voice is inspiring!)
Yes folks, my Ipod makes my world go 'round... how 'bout you?
