New Playlist


Early this afternoon, I adopted a "what I resist persists" approach to my mood and assembled an iTunes playlist called "Bri's Favorite Achingly Bitter Songs," which goes as follows [ahem]:



Why try to feel better when you can wallow in self-pity with your very own soundtrack? ;-)


Later:
Now, looking backward from this evening's vantage point, it's easier to see that the mood was conditioned by dehydration and hypoglycemia, and not by anything more substantive or worrisome than those 2 transitory imposters. Anicca, dukkha, and anatta.


Afterthought: and actually, Suzanne Vega's "World Before Columbus" doesn't really belong on the list because it's not really bitter at all, it merely imagines the pain of losing one's lover. So put an asterisk next to it, but let it stand, because it's a brilliant song.
