Q: If you had to pick a song or songs to sum up your life philosophy, what would you choose?

No kidding, I’ve thought about this question since it came in a few months ago. I keep running in to a brick wall mostly because I’ve realized that I don’t definitively know what my life’s philosophy is.

There are things I’ve come to understand about myself or ways in which I now believe in behaving as a result of being terribly mean to people in my past. I don’t take any pleasure in saying that I have been ruthlessly cruel when handling other people’s hearts. It isn’t something I am proud of. And so, I suppose you could say that continually I try to move towards redemption as I proceed forward in my life.

Each day I have varying degrees of success and failure in attempting to find forgiveness, to be honest and to practice kindness. In the course of my internal work, I wrestle with shame, guilt, depression and destructive self pity. Though I may sometimes come up short on the good things I want for myself, still I move forward towards the light hopefully.

Perhaps you might find a common thread that I don’t consciously see in some of my most played earworms:

  1. No Halo – Sorority Noise
  2. Hello, I’m in Delaware – City and Colour
  3. Blood in the Cut – K. Flay
  4. 22, a Million (full album)- Bon Iver
  5. Bloodbuzz Ohio – The National
  6. Birds – Kate Nash
  7. No One’s Gonna Love You – Band of Horses
  8. Anyone who knows what love is – Irma Thomas
  9. Buried Myself Alive – The Used
  10. Anomaly – Angels and Airwaves

This post is in response to an: Ask Me Anything question.

Ask Me Anything: What I’ve Been Asked So Far

Ask Me Anything: What I’ve Been Asked So Far

When I posted “Ask Me Anything” I figured I’d get one or two questions. I’m surprised by what turned up in my mailbox. It’s taking me a little bit to get the vids together. Just know that I’m not avoiding anything and I haven’t forgotten about your question.

What I’ve Been Asked, So Far:


Have a burning question? Ask me anything.

Ask Me Anything – A Quick Follow-up

Ask Me Anything – A Quick Follow-up

Thanks to everyone who sent in questions! I was expecting maybe one or two so the response was a bit of a surprise. I’ll leave the comment form open for a bit and see what happens: Ask me anything.

When I started answering some of the questions yesterday morning, I realized that If I did them all in one shot it would make for a long, unwatchable video. So, I’m going to have to group similar questions together and make a couple vids. That’ll be kinda fun. They’ll be coming soon!

So, again – thanks for sending Qs in. The comment form is still open if you want to use it.

For now – I’ll leave you with an answer to my favorite question so far. My only hope is that it doesn’t influence any future questions 🙂
