Susan’s Playlists April 20-24, 2015 ~ Spring. Loaded. (plus ROAR)

spring loaded David_Byrne_of_Talking_Heads“And as things fell apart, nobody paid much attention.” ~ Talking Heads, (Nothing But) Flowers

In a week of savoring spring and spring loaded joints and Earth Day, we danced to lots of great springy, earthy, nature-y music. But my favorite song of the week: (Nothing But) Flowers by Talking Heads. Check out their brilliant 1988 video here ~ I’d love to know what the statistics they quote are now. I expect none have gone in a healthy direction. Honoring the Earth and our inextricable connection to it in some way – not just on Eath Day but every day — is a step toward our healing and that of our precious planet.

Below are all our playlists from the spring. loaded. week. Go to Spotify and follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists there, too. Please note that Spotify doesn’t have all the music I have, so sometimes I’ll put up a different version of a song or skip it all together. Please let me know how this is working for you!

Before the playlists, some announce-y type things:

Nia Extravaganza Weekend ~ FRIDAY, MAY 1 – SUNDAY, MAY 3 ~ Join Nia Faculty Trainers Allison Wright and Vickie Saito for a Nia Extravaganza weekend in Richmond! They’ll offer three public classes and two playshops over the course of the weekend. Click here for more details and to sign up.

UNIVERSAL MIND ~ SATURDAY, MAY 9 ~ Kick off your Mother’s Day weekend with Universal Mind or something interesting! We’re not sure exactly what we’re going to do but between Anne and Mary Linn and me, there will be great classes at 9am at ACAC Downtown AND 1230 at Albemarle Square.
