July Playlist: Hop in, I'll Drive

I've lived in cities, where I could walk pretty much anywhere I wanted to go. And I've lived in the country, like I do now, where it seems I need to drive forever just to get out of my own back yard! Luckily, I love driving and also, sometimes, being a passenger: the scenery can be knock-my-boots-off gorgeous around these parts.

I've always loved road trips, too, though such long drives seem almost decadent (impossible?) given the warp-speed of life these days. Think of this month's playlist as a sort of map for your next road trip --- whether you take it on the road or in your mind. For me, these songs say: hop in, I'll drive!
