For the first time in quite awhile I was bouncing around town with a Walkman, knocking the dust off my old Klipsch in-ear monitors. As I walked to Wendy’s it felt like a soundtrack to my life, like this was the song of my journey and each step was accentuated by the notes underscoring the whole thing. An interesting choice of songs — The Who – Behind Blue Eyes — gave a somehow beautiful sense of contented isolation.

It’s a cool feeling, being so active in a story that seems like it’s unfolding at your feet, rather than feeling passive like a wayward leaf being swept along in the current.

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that’s never free

Never free, but always searching.

    Glad you’re enjoying your tunes.
    Yah, funny how songs of years past can have such an influence on us.
    Remember, those artists of yesteryear wrote with meaning, love and innocence.
    I’m glad to know a young man such as yourself can find such enjoyment in songs of my era.

    Keep groovin to tunes of days gone by
