The Best Playlist


I’m currently sitting in the library in a small town about 10 minutes away from my house. Next to me is my dear friend, Melody, who herself is a librarian in a neighboring town. She’s scribbling away in her notebook while I notice that it is EXTREMELY quiet in here. I get it, it’s a library, but it’s almost a little TOO awkward how everyone whispers constantly.

I mean, people put their books down quietly. They turn the pages quietly. They WALK quietly. It’s as if the library itself has secret muffling powers.

Oddly enough, it bothers me. I’m a loud person in almost everything I do. I’m the kind of person who walks into a room and immediately interrupts or disrupts whatever is happening. The Bible says “The meek shall inherit the earth.” I’ve already realized that I will definitely not be inheriting a rock.

All that to be said, that I am so thankful to be able to pop in my headphones and listen to music. Not just any music, mind you. I’m talking about a perfectly crafted playlist of about 5 or 6 unique songs that have been carefully selected and placed in a highly specific order. Who would go to all that trouble to do such a thing? Austin Plott. Formerly mentioned in previous posts as the husband to Danie Plott, the friend I visited in Texas.

Each month, Austin releases a playlist that he has artistically assembled. January 2nd rolled around and I was barking at him to send me the link to his newest masterpiece. He, of course, replied with a witty comment and the sought after link.

Friends, I just have to share it with you, because he really does make the BEST playlists. You can follow him on Spotify to stay in the know, but for now, click here for January’s playlist.

You’re welcome.
