MixTape Tuesday - 11 Years On

Peace, joy, to be loved, to have hope.
This is a list of things
 my future will bring
if I'm content to be who I am.

Recently I was cleaning out boxes and found a copy of a cassette I made for my friend Lori 11 years ago, the "Go-Girl" mix.   Over the years I've made her better mixes music-wise but this was the very first one and probably no other so perfectly captured where we were at the moment.  (Admittedly not every song stood the test of time - did you remember there was a group called Prozzäk? Because I did not.)

A lot has happened in those 11 years.  Lori lives here now.  It's been too long since our last coffee date and too long before our next one but the other day I recreated the entire "Go Girl" mix online and sent her the link.  And on opposite sides of the globe, on Monday morning (for her) and Sunday night (for me) we were both cranking up the tunes, dancing in our houses and celebrating wide open spaces, rays of light and feelin' groovy. 

Here are 11 tracks 11 years later.
