FROSTOLOGY: The 2023 Winter Playlist

Once again, we near the end of another year with hopes, dreams, and clean slates for the new one. And once again, I am planning to kick off the new year with some new tunes that will accompany me as I dive into a major new chapter of my life (new work, new relationship, a renewed sense of family and self). Well, maybe not dive – more like wade through . Diving implies a forceful impact that makes a splash; I'd rather be gentler with my entrance into 2023.  Hope you enjoy my latest compilation of tracks. The weather outside may be frightful, but my playlist is so delightful... @TheFirstEcho
