In response to text versus online magazines; as a creative person who works with their hands, it’s like comparing apples and oranges. They are both great ,but different. Online is just not a substitute and it never will be. It has nothing to do with “catching on”. When I worked in fashion design, some people loved drafting the patterns and others loved sculpting the fabric on the dress form. As a right brain person, I like to blend both for the best result. To use one over the other is to limit ones’ view. Big picture thinking!

What!!!???? 10 sailing songs and not one Jimmy Buffet? That’s just not right……


Loveliest mix. It rained here all weekend in the mountains, and it felt like sea mist two thousand miles from any ocean.


I adored this mix guys, on constant rotation of my 8tracks playlists. Can’t wait to see what you have for October!
