My New Year's resolution for 2014 was to foster more sincerity and serenity in my life and in the lives of those around me.
As it stands, I suitably distance myself from negativity and surround myself with thoughtful people. But we could all stand to be more compassionate and patient, both with others and ourselves.
With that in mind, this month's playlist is plentiful in peaceful and introspective long-format soul jazz.
Going forward History Homework will continue to be a monthly feature, however, Substitute Teachers will become a bi-monthly special. We've got some top-shelf guests lined up, so hopefully you'll forgive the retooling.
