Week 45 | Reminding of Forgetting
The more I sink into #azindie – the less music I listen to that … isn’t.

These next several Mixtapes are soundtracks that go along with the chapters of my Online Memoire Letters to Laertes. Music has always played a major part in my life, speaking to me in ways that I imagine only the poets did to previous eras. Words laced in poetry somehow sink deeper, and resonate with a more vibrant tone. When I was in the classroom, I was a firm believer in a mixed media approach, mixing ideas that might not seen synergistic, but upon analysis open the doorway to the answers. Hopefully, the music sparks your curiousity, or the slides above do, and you want to dig deeper into the stories of our lives that somehow unite us.
