I have a total vision for this playlist. Imagine you're sitting on the front porch of a cute little white house somewhere in the country or the mountains. There are apple blossoms, magnolias, cherry blossoms--everything. All the trees that bloom are blooming all around the porch. There are lilacs and a blooming hydrangea bush and birds and probably lots of sneezing, because well, it's spring. You're just casually rocking in a wooden rocking chair in your distressed jeans and sandals with this music wafting through the air. You're sipping on an iced tea or iced coffee with cream. Pick your poison. If you were to go inside (but why would you?), you'd find a blueberry pie cooling on the counter. The windows are open, so you can smell it. The sun is shining, and life is good. The house is clean, everything is done, and you're just basking in the goodness of life. Maybe this isn't your kind of spring music, but it's mine. Nothing calms and centers me quite like the twang of a banjo or an acoustic guitar. I have no explanation for this, other than the fact that banjos are the friendliest instruments (to listen to, not to play). They're what life should be.
Now that you're all cozy on your porch, turn some music on. Some is old, some is new, some is punchy, and some is sleepy. All of it is good.
