a year to shuffle

For the month of December, I am participating in Gwen Bell’s The Best of 2009 Blog Challenge. The challenge is to respond to a daily writing/photo prompt that reflects on this past year. Oh, and if you want to join me I would love to hear your stories and memories, leave a comment or a link to your site.

12/10: Album of the year (or today’s random shuffle)
Since it’s rare for me to listen to an entire album these days, I am including today’s random shuffle playlist. It’s an eclectic mix of little vignettes from the past.
p.s. I tried to get the exact recordings, but not all of them are available.
