My Morning Soundtrack

I’ve awoken with random songs in my head for years so I decided to log them into a playlist of my subconscious. It’s kind of like being in Mr. Peabody’s Wayback Machine.*

Maybe a multi-morning mashup?

About deb

Wandering and wondering - taking it all in -- and increasingly shaking my head. Who are we and how did we get to this here? And, what, where and how next? Putting what I see and think out there in pictures and always looking for other ways, hence, this blog. This blog, like me, is a work in process and still doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up.
