May 2015 Playlist

“Comes a time
when you’re driftin’
Comes a time
when you settle down” – Neil Young

I think it’s about time I do some driftin’. At least that’s my romantic notion at the moment. Maybe it’s my age, but I can’t imagine the urge to “drift” around the country to ever cease. Oh well.

may_2015_playlist_jay_jasinskiI went for a hike at Wildwood Canyon yesterday, and it made me feel restored. It’s a path I frequent, so its familiarity makes me feel a little less lost in this mess of a city. That’s the best Los Angeles can offer: pockets of comfort. It’s like a 2,000 piece jigsaw puzzle a group of friends divided, managed to put together a few corners and most of the middle, then lost interest in finishing.

It’s amazing that you can find a place so quiet and, with the exception of one or two sweaty hikers, empty in a city of almost four million. I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t manage without places like Wildwood Canyon.

I hope you’re all enjoying the month of May. Here are some tunes to listen to while you work in the yard or whatever it is you do this time of year. Enjoy.
