And that man who would save us, From the hurt the world brings, neglected to mention, Who would save us from him

Driving home listening to the bluetones, I thought about living in the live music capital of the world, and an infinite number of blogs with music....what sticks is are songs or artists with emotional attachment. It can be the smell of something, or how you were feeling at the AC/DC show.

In perspective of change, what does that say about people if they go back to the 'old favorites.' Some people's old favorites are one or two artists, others are many. Branching out allows redefinition of yourself and favorites, and a 'bigger bag of tricks'.

Many people tell me your success in life is gauged on the interest of the stories you can tell.

Serendipity Obituary (one of the most painful movies ever seen, the focus is on the journey and not the destination)

Jonathan Trager, prominent television producer for ESPN, died last night from complications of losing his soul mate and his fiancee. He was 35 years old. Soft-spoken and obsessive, Trager never looked the part of a hopeless romantic. But, in the final days of his life, he revealed an unknown side of his psyche. This hidden quasi-Jungian persona surfaced during the Agatha Christie-like pursuit of his long reputed soul mate, a woman whom he only spent a few precious hours with. Sadly, the protracted search ended late Saturday night in complete and utter failure. Yet even in certain defeat, the courageous Trager secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather, its a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan. Asked about the loss of his dear friend, Dean Kansky, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and executive editor of the New York Times, described Jonathan as a changed man in the last days of his life. "Things were clearer for him," Kansky noted. Ultimately Jonathan concluded that if we are to live life in harmony with the universe, we must all possess a powerful faith in what the ancients used to call "fatum", what we currently refer to as destiny.
