Behind the wheel for most of us is a time to reflect...The good times - success - lost and found love - overwhelming grief and at times, the self torture...
For good or bad It's my think tank. I'm sure you've let your guard down out on the road, let your music take you away, rejoice in it's brilliance or seek shelter in lyrics - especially when they confirm you not alone.
I had big dreams and plans over the last few years, as we all do.... Some I accomplished, and some - well - the others were so close.... I could touch it... if I leaned.
I spent many a road trip going over the same scenario, the what if's and why's, and basking in the flames of my misfortune. So after drinking myself sober I knew it was time to rebuild, or at least survey the wreckage. Just for the record, I'm OK now. So this weeks pick soundtracks that window of time - "The Devil Makes Three" with "Graveyard"
I had the trio on high rotation back then and Graveyard struck a chord for obvious reasons - yeah sure, it ticks all my usual Folk, Americana and Old Time Country boxes. But despite the dark story-line the catchy folk delivery helps keep you teetering between cup half empty and half full.
These days I just listen, sing along.... without blame or regret.
