March Playlist: Duality

The recent tragedies have me thinking about our hierarchy of needs. In normal life, all the little things matter. What kind of car we drive, how much money we have in the bank, etc. Then the world flips on its heads, millions of people are bombed, displaced, separated from their families, and either defending or leaving behind everything that's ever been home. 

Suddenly our worries become small, almost superficial, and nearly unimportant in comparison to waking up at home in the safety and comfort of our beds. These simple and beloved pleasures that become so common we lose awe of how much they mean to our lives as human beings and creatures of comfort.

As all of us are, I am deeply saddened for the people of Ukraine, humbled by the support of the world and our compassion for our fellow human beings, and practicing now more than ever gratitude for the solid yet simple things I've overlooked that turn out to be absolutely everything. 

This playlist won't heal the hurt of the world and promises no resolution. I wish anything could. But I hope it will bring you some comfort for where you are, and some presence to see and appreciate all that you have.
