Start over

I've been letting stuff get to me this week. If you're following me on Twitter, thanks for your patience through that.

You know what, though? I have a blessed life. I have friends and family around me, a fantastic partner, a roof over my head, food on my plate and in the refrigerator, a job to go to every day, and plenty of toys.

And each morning when I wake up, and at various points throughout the day, I have the opportunity to push a mental re-set button. And so I'm pushing that button today. Here's that tune again.


I'm off-grid at the Finger Lakes Wine Festival this weekend. Here are 10 songs with no particular reason other than I like them (just happens I must be in a male songwriter mood, I guess). Also, check out some of Mike Dobbs's favorites.

1. Tom Waits, "Step Right Up" (With tuning!)

2. Michael Franti & Spearhead, "What I Be"

3. Jackopierce, "Vineyard"

4. Spring Heeled Jack, "Jolene"

5. Seth Horan, "Something Pretty" (You won't see that hair at the CNY house concert!)

6. Cheb Tarik, "L'histoire"

7. James O'Brien, "After the Prom"

8. Hank Williams, "Honky Tonkin'"

9. Ellis Paul, "Take All The Sky You Need"

10. Leonard Cohen, "Hallelujah"
