Do you have a favorite playlist?
I do. I have many.
In fact, one of my favorite things to do is to come up with the music to set the perfect ambiance for gatherings. I enjoy thinking about who will be there, what the purpose of the event is – social, learning, thinking, fun, connecting…
It’s a small thing, and it makes a big difference.
I love sharing playlists and playing games with music. Music anchors people to events, creates common language and connective tissue where there was none, and offers a background to disappear into when stress is high.
When we enjoy time on our boat, we play the music game. It’s simple. Choose a song to share and tell us the story behind it. Once people share their song and story, there are usually some great laughs, some touching moments, shared experiences, and everyone learns things they didn’t know about each other.
Sharing music can be an easy doorway for storytelling and connection.
If you check out my playlists on Spotify, you’ll be tapping into a collection of memories. Please enjoy!
