Defrosting the Winter

Music is good for the soul, and for your mental health.  A highly under-utilized self-soothing and motivation tool, it only makes sense to include a new music selection each week on the blog. Representative of  hundreds of little seasons of the heart, the songs we connect with help us track time and realize the changes that are happening in our lives.  Especially if you're working on making positive personal shifts, music is just so, so, very, very important.  If you have a song you'd like to share on the site, send me an email and let me know so that I can feature it -- because sharing music heals.

This week's Sound Track Sunday is: "Come On Feel The Illinoise" by Sufjan Stevens and was submitted by Shannon Sautter from the beautiful state of North Carolina -- many thanks for contributing some fresh music, Shannon!

Shannon says it's the perfect song for this kind of mood:

For the bleak, wintry February day when the twinkling holiday lights are gone and the streets are just cold and snowy, but you want to bring back a bit of the holiday magic that can turn a dirty, snowy street into a wintry wonderland.
