Of Playlists and America

This 🎧➡️ Madame ❌ Is on a Wedding Shuttle playlist I made back on a warm early summer night out in Paso Robles last May is fun. It’s good limpiando-la-casa company. It tells a good story, too, when you listen to the lyrics and, then, when you string ’em along…the ones that resonate.

No change, I can’t change, I can’t change, I can’t change. We are who we are and all.

The name of the playlist itself tells a good story. Madame X would not be on a wedding shuttle. What? That’s absurd.

Freedom’s what you choose to do with what’s been done to you. There’s a freedom to the flow of the music. Freedom’s what I love about America.

I came here because I was seeking something which I knew I could definitely find here, the land of the free, the home of the brave. Freedom. Libertad.

I takes guts to leave your home, no matter who you are and no matter where you’re from, OK. It is scary. If you’re privileged enough, it also can be exciting. An adventure. But for the most part, it’s a last resort.

Thank goodness for music. It makes vivir lo nuestro that much more fun.
