A week from yesterday my grandmother passed away from ALS. I have taken the past week to grieve and be with my family. I made this playlist as a means of grieving but also as an admission to the gift it was to be so close to my grandmother. To have put on her makeup for her when she couldn’t, days before she passed. To have smiled and laughed and chatted when it was so very difficult for her to do so.
It’s a feeling that is perfectly synonamous with this time of year. The reality that the ground is covered with dirty snow and it’s been blasted cold since what seems like eternity coupled with the joy of knowing spring is close at hand. But even if you’re not feeling any of these things, it’s still good music, so give it a listen.
