This playlist ended up feeling like a playlist perfect for an early morning solo hike. Or, maybe you’re with one other person, but it’s early enough that you don’t say much. It drifts from this feeling occasionally, bringing in some more energy, but it mostly lives in that space.
If hiking is out of reach, I would suggest waking up early (bundling up, if it’s cold) and sitting outside as you enjoy coffee or tea. Watch the world around you.
One last note – several of your suggested “Old Pine” by Ben Howard. While I agree that fits the theme quite well, it was on last Sunday’s playlist and I try not to double-dip. That’s like putting your whole mouth right in the dip!
