PLAYLIST FOR “SOMETHING GOOD MIGHT HAPPEN” (6.8.19)

9 Jun

I’m have always been a “the-glass-is-half-empty” kind of guy. (I also worry who’s been drinking from that glass.) Why? Growing up, my family had a clear and distinct world view: “Something bad might happen.” So this week I challenged – no, I dared myself to look through the eyes of people who actually (and inexplicably) see the world positively. I played song after song about things possibly going right and how to make that happen. Happily I got through it but only by repeating my daily, personal affirmation: “What on earth were you thinking?”
