Music to Work By, Part 1

In the spirit of continuing to slow down, digest, and set intentions before moving forward: I bring you a mix.

It's moody, it's's- recorded without headphones..... *upside down smiley emoji*

I'm feeling equally nostalgic and optimistic, as I wrap up this season (of the show and the last zodiac season before my birthday). All that has needed to be said, has, and all that's left to do is rest, prepare, and rest some more.

I'll be back soon beloveds.
