A new year calls for many things—a reassessment of short and long term life goals, a new agenda insert, perhaps a greater appreciation for the present. For me, it’s a moment to reset while looking back at the previous year and ahead toward the forthcoming one.
In 2018 I moved across the country. In the past six months, I’ve enjoyed the novelty and stimulation of a new setting while facing some very adult truths.
But I’ve also met new friends, potential mentors, and glimpsed who I’ll be five years from now.
Along the way, some great music has punctuated my journey. In a manner I sense many people also consume and associate music, every song takes me back to a setting, a feeling, or a person. Some positive and warm, others more chilling.
These are some of my favorites, moving from 2018 into 2019.
