Intro: Spin Me Round, Ennui

“Spin Me Round, Ennui” is a quasi self-help column that covers everyday topics with the addition of a “soundtrack.”  I believe music is healing:  it gets you through tough times, entertains you on long car rides up and down the East Coast, inspires you to create stories, puts your baby (or fur baby) to sleep, makes you dance, fills the awkward silence…and ennui—is the feeling of going in circles, without purpose. Maybe that’s okay?  If we’re not going anywhere, we may as enjoy where we are and hit “Shuffle Play.”
