It’s officially Summer on the west coast of Canada and I’m looking forward to some of the best things about this time of year: comfortable company, barbecue smoke, cloud watching, a warm breeze, colourful flowers, trails of baby ducks… I enjoy these things and cherish them but as I’m stretched out on the sand, tying up the hammock or making a miraculous frisbee catch I am amazed at how such lightness is pressed up so closely with heaviness: the rocks at the breakwater, the entire beach of sand, the sun and the earth itself. How a weightless glint of sunshine can dance on the ocean.

This mix is all about the lighter things. It’s more a pound of feathers than a pound of lead, if you catch my drift, and is inspired by how a good laugh can sometimes change everything.

Hey Jim,
Thanks for this. I’ve been listening to it almost nonstop and have been catching up on some of your older mixes too. So great!
