So, it’s Tune Tuesday again and here’s a lovely little song about how possessions come to mean so much to us: Lost Property by The Divine Comedy.
Possessions of a sentimental kind: they were mine, now they’re not.
It’s about stuff he has mislaid over the years, but would equally apply to items ditched in haste, which is something I have to say I worry about as I try to shed so many of my belongings.
Interestingly, one of the items I had been reluctant to get rid of till now is a t-shirt from this very tour. Maybe I’ll be reunited with it in a dream someday?
Is it a coincidence that one of the most popular pop songs of the 20th century was a stinging critique of the daily grind? I think not. Enjoy!
In my book, Ms Parton’s wisdom knows no bounds. I’ll leave you with a quote of hers, which is pinned to my fridge:
Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.
Week two of Tune Tuesdays and we’re going for a chilled-out vibe with Mylo’s Sunworshipper.
One of those tracks that runs that fine line between hypnotic and irritating, but I like the underlying message of freedom and escapism. The idea that minimalism helps make travel easier is a pretty alluring one.
Tune Tuesdays is a regular segment featuring tracks about minimalism, simple living or freedom from debt or financial troubles. Requests welcome!
Introducing a new segment: Tune Tuesdays.
Every Tuesday, I’ll post a song that is relevant to the themes of minimalism, simple living, financial well-being or clearing debt.
Here’s the first one, The Hollies and The Air That I Breathe. Spot the minimalist lyrics.
