Well, it’s time for The Mistress of the Mix™ to return for a special holiday edition of Soundtracks for Life…and if you guessed it’s a special Valentine’s Day edition then you guessed correctly. But you know me…it’s far from the typical VD mix. Far from it…
Soundtracks for Life
Life Experience #4:
Deep, Profound & Inconsolable Heartbreak
Not everyone is all sunshine, rainbows and unicorns spraying hearts from their butts on Valentine’s Day…and those not head over heels aren’t all bitter little man/woman-hating trolls bent on ripping off cupid’s wings and beating him to death with them. Some people are injured…nursing their bleeding, broken hearts without hatred, anger or bitterness – only sadness over futures lost; washing their wounds with their tears. And some of those people need to wallow, have a really good make-your-eyes-all-puffy-and-your-nose-all-red sleep inducing cry…and that’s okay. This mix is for you. All you heart-farters (wow…what a class act…did I seriously just say “heart-farters?” I hope that doesn’t sound bitchy. I honestly don’t mean it that way. I love heart-farters too. *wink*) out there – no need to give this Soundtrack for Life a listen. You can if you like, but I don’t think you’ll get much out of it. Neither will the embittered. This one’s for the bruised, the bereft. I know you’re out there. I know because I am one of you. This is music for the grieving…because sometimes to heal our wounds we must embrace them.
And for what it’s worth, all of those in mourning this Valentine’s Day…remember you are loved.
Kisses & Kisses & Hope & Time,
Alli Woods Frederick
