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.
