mixed tapes

I had a friend/boyfriend/friend in that order who made the most incredible mixed tapes. I do miss those days, but I've kept every mixed tape that someone made me with the expectation that I'll transfer it to the most current media. The following was the opening song of a tape that was sent to me when I was in Germany. Intentions were clear and he got the girl for a long while. I sometimes regret running away from a future with him, but I guess if I didn't, I wouldn't have had the future I had. Sometimes that's a good thought, sometimes it's bad. But no point in dwelling. Unfortunately this mixed tape was lost in Germany.

Love REM, love this song, love the art of the mixed tape.
I sometimes think about different paths I could have chosen also. It can be crazy making, but I try to remember that things happen for a reason.

I dated a guy for a while who was a DJ and had more music than I could comprehend. He made me the nicest mixed Cd's.

I loved mixed tapes and mixed CDs. I still have a tape player, so when I find a tape I mixed a long time ago, it's fun to listen to the songs again.

Yeah Laura, it's best not to go down that path too much.
Churlita - wish I had dated a dj.
Tara, I still have one too, but don't often listen to them.
