I organized my over 1000 songs by "play count" this morning and listen from the most played down to the least played. After listening to my top ten I was struck with what an frightening candid story they tell of my year thus far. Frightening in the sense that it was my subconscious that was drawn to the plot that seems to be ingrained in each song and the mood that they all put forth. It looks like my life is that of a modern day drifter grounded by his faith and fueled by each and every set back. I have the soul of a cowboy and the motivation of the kid from the wrong side of the tracks mixed with the aspirations of a superstar.
