Remember mixed tapes?
Of course you do.
Getting one was great, but making one was almost better, right?
I received a bit of insight, this is good. Here it is: When you feel like you're losing track of that place where you're creating from the heart, that's the energy you want to bring in -- "Hey, I made this for you".
Since feeling-states are better experienced than described this might not make sense. (I did after all start off on a premise that you love mixed tapes). Maybe your hey-I-made-this for-you joy place comes from baking cookies for the neighbours.
I have a secret plan, btw, to make online mixes on 8tracks and share them here, (because it's the most mixed-tape-like forum I've seen). So now it's not a secret - I've said it, it's gonna happen! -- so you can watch out for those.
