Playlist of the Week: Standing Still, Watching the Swirl of Life and Leaves

Jess Shaffer | Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Fall is definitively upon us. Leaves are falling off the trees as quickly as the days seem to be flying off the calendar. It seems like everything is in a state of motion and change. But before life blows by you or you blow away with it, take a deep breath to enjoy the color of the trees and smell of the crisp autumn air. Here’s a list of songs to help you be one with our quickly spinning ND universe, while still being static enough to drink in its glory. Hope it makes you want to live and want to watch life with the utmost awe and appreciation. Enjoy!
