Yes, the ol’ inspirational playlist. Everyone has an album, a choice set of songs they crank via headphones. I thought I’d post my list…to see what we have in common. My pictures and writings are usually moody; suggestive of solitude and lonliness, and wah wah wah but in a funny way.

So here’s the list of songs I listen to whenever I’m out and about taking pictures or writing. It’s been honed and crafted into an almost 40 song collection of pure bleakness. It’s called “Joy.” Pick your faves.
