Tag Archives: Morningside Gardens

26 September 2019

This one is for the young people who challenge us to care for the planet. Special thanks to abby  and to Nicole whose examples and work and action suggestions encourage   me to be more involved.

Slow jog / walk. Morningside Gardens. For the first time in this new effort, more jogging than walking occurred. Hence the switch in order.

Walking. Morningside Gardens.
I create playlists for a number of reasons beyond having music for walks and workouts. Basic playlists offer an opportunity to include songs from diverse artists. Specific artists are honored from time to time. Special days and current events are sometimes recognized. Playlists have focused on family birthdays. Sometimes all the songs in a playlist address the same theme (at least in my way of thinking); sometimes only a couple do.
Today’s playlist focused on support for a friend. It won’t be listed, so to speak. But it did. And my friend knows. That is enough.
