Love as a Mixtape (My LOVE Mixtape 50)

I remember a time that I used buy Maxell tapes by the package.  The way that we buy CDs now.  It is kind of funny that tapes have become so obsolete when it seemed like just yesterday that they were relevant.  In fact I have come across a cassette box of old tapes and and even some newly packaged Maxell Cassette tapes.  I even have a tape player for nostalgic sake.  Playing the recorded music and falling into the moment of a time where music was music.  A time when the words told a story and made you feel things deep inside your spirit. 

I remember a time when I would sit on the floor in my room strategically taping music off the radio and off of other tapes to make a special mix for someone special and I also recall a time that I received such tapes.  It was all so sweet and so awesome.  It was meaningful and special.
