Grateful Sunday – March 18, 2018


I’m grateful that I decided self-care and healing, instead of forcing myself to go back to work before my extraction had healed. Well, I kind of had a doctor’s note for that too.

Wednesday Share Day – March 14, 2018

So, here I am planning on DJing this weekend at my annual retreat. The request was to have music that spans the generations and hopefully a pre-programmed set list.


I love all types of music and have no problem coming up with a two hour set (I actually need 8-10 hours minimum to play all my top hits).


The problem with having a play list already made, is that I’m not able to read the crowd. What’s the age group of who I’m playing to? What gender is most on the dance floor? Does everyone want up beat music or are they deep in conversation looking for good background music they can tap their feet to while chatting?


Basically, the energy of the crowd ebbs and flows. Much like relationships. Much like life. We can’t pre-program how we expect the world around us to work. We much stay present, listen, and observe.


Every time I plan to play, I search for songs I may not have. What are the newest hits from the different musical genres? Do I have any songs that match the theme of the event I am playing?
