June was not a month where I paid much attention to music. I normally start giving the playlist for the current a decent amount of play in the last week and carry that through the start of the next one but the opportunities didn’t come up this month.
The best “new to me” song was Cumberland Gap by David Rawlings along with Gillian Welch. It’s a cracking tune, the opener for the latest Guy Ritchie flick, The Gentlemen. I enjoyed the film but song stuck with me.
The rest of the tracks are good individually, but the whole playlist is kinda weird and meh. July has been pretty slim pickings so far, but hopefully it’ll include some gems.
I was a regular attendee of a CrossFit gym for three years, stopping only due to the time investment. I loved the people, I loved the exercise. When the lockdown kicked in I went back CrossFit style exercises a few days a week, going so far as to create a feed of the CrossFit workout of the day that I could subscribe to in my feed reader.
Today I turned that feed off. I still love the people at my gym and the exercise. But, jfc, who could support CrossFit HQ? Not me. I don’t want to point to them other than to say this:
Wellington has a fantastic coffee culture. I enjoy sitting in coffee shops, where I can draw and observe people passing by. These are great places to relax, meet friends, and connect with others. For me, this is where my stories begin.
