Having a bit of a sentimental night. Went to Gretchen's house and met Mike and Angie there to discuss framing possibilities for all the art for the upcoming benefit. Brought Atticus and Gabrielle with.

Remembered old memories. Not sure why. Re-read old blog entries. Remembered old lives. Want to post (re-post) the playlists people sent in for Atticus. So sweet and beautiful.


here is one list for young Atticus:

Across the Universe The Beatles
Longer Boats Cat Stevens
Into the Mystic Van Morrison (though I love Valerie Carter?s version)
Wayfaring Stranger by anybody, but listen to Johnny Cash doing it
Spoon River recorded by Steve Goodman
Love Affair with Everyday Livin The Woodentops
Everybody Hurts R.E.M
She Breaks for Rainbows B 52?s
Time of the Season The Zombies
It?s Not What You?ve Got, It?s How You Use It Carrie Lucas
