Playlist: Tempest’s Serenade

August 2, 2011

I am away from writing and my blog, but I have a special treat today.

The one that started it all. Because, you see, I came to writing backwards. Usually people want to write and they dig for the story. In my case, the story came to me and found me lacking the skills to tell it. These are the songs that accompany my vision. Often I despair that the story may ever become anything more than a daydream, but these songs will always evoke those first days when I shyly approached my computer and attempted to write it down.

Warning: I mix it up a lot, as you’ll see. Led Zeppelin nestles up next toThe Shins and Moby nudges The Who. It’s all good.
