Hey, Don’t Be Too Hard On Yourself

The only time these days that I'm ever inspired to write about something is when I'm at work. Which doesn't work in my favour at all because I hardly get to write when I'm at work.

It must be the caffeine effect.

The photo above was taken at one of the cafes in Gard du Nord train station in Paris, and is one of the many outtakes from the 'Paris, I Miss You' series. Lately, I've been searching for music that reminds me of my Paris visit, and I finally found it in Chilly Gonzales' album called 'Solo Piano'. Essentially this is a very good record, and serves its purpose really well in helping to conjure memories and images deep within the recesses of the mind. There are so many good tunes to pick out, but for now, I strongly suggest that you take a listen to this and this.

At the other side of the music spectrum is this record. I still have to go through a lot more sittings to be able to enjoy the new Norah Jones album. The only one track that sticks is this one below. I have so much love for this song, it's ridiculous.

Norah Jones - Travelin' On

Two other albums that I plan on listening to more of, is the new Best Coast and the new Yuna album. If you haven't tried any of those out, then I highly recommend that you do.

The working week is almost coming to an end. (Woohooh!)
