There’s something different about the transition from winter into spring. Instead of just a temperature change, there’s also a phoenix-like resurgence of life that is unlike anything else. Cold & dark turns into warm & light, life literally burst out of death, and people start wearing lighter jackets that are almost always more fun to look at.
Spring is a beautiful thing. It’s somewhat magical, a little bit amazing and utterly captivating. Now that we no longer have to use our own energy to generate warmth, we can slow down, take a look around, and just enjoying being wherever we are.
I think that deserves a playlist that encourages, accompanies, and immortalizes that experience.
