Music Monday: It's Almost that Time

Summer’s freedoms sit a bit uneasily this time of year; there is an air of tension in amusement parks, more desperation in the races to be first to the water at the beach. This weekend we will pedal our bikes with determined wills; in parks we'll avoid the shade.

It starts with a storefront window.

One day a sign goes up that reads, “Back to School Sale!” and kids suddenly remember that as the days grow shorter, the days will soon feel much longer. Of course there are friends, and sports, and favorite teachers on the horizon, but if you can remember being a kid when this time of year came, then you know: It’s hard to avoid looking backward.

This week’s playlist is looking forward to the school season, to the shopping lists and the lost days of sleeping in.

Let's be friends on Spotify (@nightanddaystudios); we'd love to hear your Back to School playlist.
