Road trip music


If you know me, you know that music plays a very significant part of my life. Almost every memory in my adult life includes a specific song attached to it. In France, I had a particular playlist that if I listen to now will bring me back to the cold and rustic streets of Lyon. There will be particular songs that will forever define college for me. And certain artists have been pivotal in my day-to-day activities, as well as the relationships in my life.

As I've said before, music is a language that transcends time and overcomes barriers of cultural and circumstantial boundaries. It's quite a beautiful thing, and I suggest that if you haven't let music into your life yet, you do so right now. None of this top 40 junk...make music unique to you. Let it be a part of your definition of life.

Music also helps me escape when insanity and chaos begin to creep in. Throughout this trip, many people have pulled me aside and whispered, "How do you do it? I sure would not be able to." But the explanation is quite simple: when I feel like I'm about to lose it, I pop those little ear buds in and let the music be my escape. It soothes me, energizes me and inspires me. There are certain songs for writing, certain songs for working, certain songs for running and certain songs for being sad and happy.

These are just a few songs that are currently on repeat throughout my great American road trip:
