After nearly three years of writing I’m on a Journey, I have published my hundredth blog post. Rather than lament the posts that could have been, I’m celebrating the posts I have published. More particularly, I’m celebrating one hundred plus Songs of the Day. If you have read my blog for a while, you’ll know that every post ends with my selection of a Song of the Day. Some of the songs relate directly to the post, others are songs I listened to while I wrote, and still others are songs I loved and wanted to share. While a number of the songs relate to a moment in my life, others relate to a moment in time. (I can’t be the only one who listened to “Seasons (Waiting For You)” by Future Islands constantly in the summer of 2014.) My Spotify playlist is below. I hope you find something new to listen to, and you reconnect with a song you once loved.
