Meaning of the Mix

My favorite thing about iTunes is how easy it is to make mixes.  Tompaul and I have been making each other mixes for as long as I can remember…definitely since we started dating.  I am not even sure how many in all we have made.

In truth the only other person I have made a mixes for is my friend Myntha.  No wait…I made one for Mary Heather called Pink Rain.  I think in all I have made Myntha  about 4 mixes. Out of Apathy, Bitter, Sweet, and Winter: Death of Reverence.  And now Broken.    I make music mixes when I am feeling good.  If I am making a mix it means I am in tune with my soul, my id etc.  When I am feeling intellectually constipated my music mixing ability stops.  It goes into hibernation…unused.  I feel that when I make a mix I have something I want to say.  When I am overwhelmed with work, residency, I have nothing to say.  My brain is silent.  Since starting fellowship I have mede a total of two mixes Broken and Longing.  I am also working on a mix I started quite a while back.

So here I present Broken:

1.  Ambulance –  Eisley
2. Rise Up – Diane Birch
3. World Spins Madly On – The Weepies
4. Love the Way You Lie – Eminem
5. Mess Of Me – Switchfoot
6. Hero – Jars of Clay
7.  The Wanderer –  Johnny Cash (w U2)
8.  Fighting Furies – Charmaine
9. Fix You – Coldplay
10. Forgive Me – Jars of Clay
This is Longing.  The full title is Longing: Songs of A Time Travelers Wife. I compiled it while Tompaul was away.  It’s a tale of waiting, bitter sweet.  It was the space I was in when starting fellowship, living in a new city and waiting for Tompaul to come home.  He was gone almost a month and while I was waiting I had alot of heavy things on my plate. Job search, Noelle being ill and the uncertainty of that etc.
