I've been feeling lighter lately. It's been easier to come up with new ideas and inspiration, and for the first time in a very long time my deep-rooted pessimism is being eroded by a sweet nagging optimism. I like where this is going.

"Lightening Up" is a small collection of tracks that I've been listening to a lot lately. I think the tone of the mix reflects my own tearily happy mood. It's sure nice to get some good news.
