Day #11: Music
December 11, 2012Posted by on
What was music to your ears in 2012, literally or metaphorically?
Literally … as I wrote recently, Spotify has just completely turned my music world upside down, exposing me to more and more music. And Olivia O’Bryon posted a video of an incredible Johnny Cash song that got me into Mr. Cash in a major way.
Literally … I feel like the last few months have provided me with an explosion musically. From The Lumineers to Mumford & Sons to Of Monsters and Men to Belinda Carlisle to old stand-bys from my younger days … just added April Wine, Billy Thorpe, and Zebra to my Spotify playlist. I even added some songs from recent American Idol contestants. Crystal Bowersox has some serious musical talent and some incredible songs.
Metaphorically … well, I’m listening to that piece of me that’s inside more. I’m not religious. I don’t believe in God. But, I’m believing more and more in the idea that we people have something inside of us. Maybe it’s a soul (but not the Catholic soul). Maybe it’s something else. But, there’s a center that I have and I’m trying to listen to it. Not just listen to it, but nourish it as well.
