Wandering in the cool air and wilderness, and watching the leaves fall off trees. It all reminds me of this old school Fleetwood Mac song, “Sunny Side of Heaven,” from their aptly-named 1972 album, Bare Trees. Hope you love it as much as I do.
Need a little encouragement? For me, The Shins’ “It’s Only Life” helps (partly because the kid and his tree branch antlers are so cute). Watch. Listen. Enjoy.
I just heard Jackson Browne was touring in Austin last week. I’m so bummed I missed the chance to hear and relate to his introspective, heartfelt, and poignant lyrics; there aren’t any others like him out there. I remember listening to and identifying with him a lot during my days as a Texas 4000 rider. One of our unofficial theme songs as a team on the Rockies ride was “These Days.” This song, “I’m Alive,” is one of my favorites, too. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.
New music with a fun beat = happy running! This will keep me moving during my training for Kilimanjaro.
Can’t wait to go on a long run with this song turned way up. “Breaking the Yearlings” by Austin’s own Shearwater (founded by Okkervil River’s Jonathan Meiburg). Do iPods work at 19,000+ feet?
