Thanks LO and Nina. Heart absorbing tune.
May we remember the potential in dying for a
cause which furthers us all. Keep on fighting
for a better future. Why not?

King would want us to live to balance injustice.

That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

Thanks again. And..this might be a good place to ask--is there any rhyme or reason to the *order* of the music videos that you post?

Chronological? Random? Personal favorites at the top and bottom? Just curious. I'm not completely retired yet and so I rarely have the time to listen to all the music videos, but I'd like to listen to those that you would highly recommend of all the selections, if that makes sense.

You don't even want to know how many tabs I have open of things I'm going to read "soon", thanks to you!

I hope you and all have a good week.

@peachcreek

is there any rhyme or reason to the *order* of the music videos that you post?

within a given post?

there is no general rule that all of the music posts follow. sometimes i will post the music in chronological order more or less, if the artist has notably different periods of their work. most often, though, i just post the tunes in an order that i find pleasing, which may have more to do with tempo and other considerations than anything else. so it's rarely just higgldy-piggldy.

if you were asking about the order of artists for posting, i have a list that started out with a calendar of birthdays, but there were so many more artists on my list than days of the year, it is almost always out of synch with the regular calendar. after a while, i started adding artists to the list as they occurred to me as i was working through it, so that further unchains it from the calendar year.

anyway, i hope that makes it at least as clear as mud. Smile

have a great day!
