Mark Saleski’s Friday Morning Listen

Mark Saleski is one of our finest and most regular contributors, and his ongoing Friday Morning Listen feature deserves special attention – we will collect them here:

    For some time now, I’ve had this little ritual. On Friday mornings I attach special significance to the first cd that I play. Don’t know why. It seems like a mini-commentary (in my head) on how things are going for me. Maybe it’s that I’m psyched to be at the end of a good week..the end of a bad one..or the start of a (hopefully) good weekend. This has never been completely clear to me. So a while back I started posting these selections on my website as “The Friday Morning Listen”.

    Maybe at some point in the future I can make sense of it…
