After returning to work following baby O’s birth I decided that it was time to treat myself to a little something. I’ve been wanting an iPod for sometime, not long after I inherited Dave’s iPod Nano and realised just how good it was to have so much music on something so small.
It’s fabulous! Slowly slowly I’ve been moving my music collection from CD to the iPod. The aim is to eventually have no CDs stored under my bed. Just the idea makes me feel lighter. I find lots of possession weighty, like an anchor.
Mostly I’m a less is more kinda person. Smaller size is less storage, and yet more music and more podcasts. There is just so much to love. One of my favourite reasons for going to work is sitting at my desk, headset on listening to my tunes.
I love sitting out in the garden chillaxing listening to music too. Better still with some crochet or some knitting. A dose of vitamin D for the bones and a vibrant blue sky to uplift the soul. Really – does life get better than that?
One of the few draw backs of transferring my music collection to iPod is the covers. Sure you can store the artwork on the iPod itself but people can’t write messages – and that is a bit of a loss. I’m a fan of people writing messages, on CD sleeves or on the inside cover of a book. That’s what can turn something ordinary into something really really special.
What about you?
Are you transferring your music to MP3s or similar?
Or perhaps your still hanging on to your LPs and CDs?
Do you listen to podcasts? What’s your favourite?
Are you a fan of written messages on CD sleeves or in the covers of books?
