Things Falling Into Place.

"He who knows he has enough is rich" - Lao-tzu

No matter how stressful things may get or how bleak the future may look, there is always an opportunity to take a step back and look at the big picture.  For most of us, we have a roof to sleep under, enough food and water to survive, money in our pocket for a drink or two and good friends.  This has been a good week for me.  Various projects at work fell into place all on one day and the sun looks like it is finally here to stay in Oregon.  If this isn't your week, cheer up, take a breather.  There is always next week.

Have a great weekend.

1. Patrick Lee - Southern Cars (Golden Hour, 2001)
    Patrick Lee is the man.  All of his albums are up for pay what you want.
2. Lord Huron - Mighty (Mighty EP, 2010)
    This is going to make it on my upcoming Mountain Driving Mix for sure.  "Animal Collective
     meets Fleet Foxes.  Thanks to Tadhg. More tracks available for download here.
3. Ben Benjamin - Finding the Perfect Egg (For Long Drives and Temporary Diversions, 2011)
    The original inspiration for this mix.  Easy going with a moody theme.  From the frontman of
     Midwest Product.
4. Perpetual Groove - I Know What I Know (Live at the Highline Ballroom, New York, NY 2008)
     Yeah, I know it doesn't fit.  And just because this is one of my mom's favorite jams does not mean
     that it isn't a good song.
5. Lusine - Operation Costs (A Certain Distance, 2009)
    This song was playing over the weekend in a park in Seattle where they had this huge water
    fountain.  It is quite the experience to be in a city known for perpetual dreary weather when it gets
    its first 70 degree day.  Everyone has a smile on their face.
6. Patrick Lee - Sara (Out Cold, 2000)
    Simple, but I like it.
