The Civil Wars
And I know I'm going to be annoyed at the loved albums I haven't referred to. I didn't include any of the classical ones, because although I thoroughly enjoy it, I can't line up the music with the concertos, movements and symphonies, not to mention the composers.
I loved walking with an iPod, crocheting with one, sitting in a chair with popcorn and one, or drinking wine and eating chocolate with one.
Last summer, I lent the Nano to Emily. She is a sweet and generous person, and I decided that I wouldn't ask for it back, knowing how full of babies and work and meals and kickboxing her life is. And now I have an iPod shuffle, which is teeny tiny efficient, cheerful and did I mention inexpensive. It's perfect.
I'd totally forgotten how much I love having music beating in my ears, and how happy it makes me to find ways to do stuff with music in the foreground.
