SoTD: Iron and Wine “Boy with a Coin”

There’s no reason or rhyme for today’s song selection.  I’m usually inspired by some thing or other and sometimes the song selects itself for me.  Today I had to actually scan through a list of songs in a playlist before anything jumped out at me.   After not posting anything yesterday, it actually took some effort to convince myself to click the New Post button and string together a few words and paste a song link.  It’s not that I’m running out of enthusiasm for daily posts but rather that I’m having a hard time tearing my mind away from other things to give this blog much attention.

It’s been a week now since I last touched my favorite of substances.  While I feel great physically, mentally I am having difficulty adjusting to not having a handbrake when my thoughts start running in circles or they take me down some crazy path of doubt and darkness.  I’m having a difficult time tuning out the noise and not letting it totally hijack my day.  It takes a lot of effort and I find myself wistfully wishing to take the lazy way out and fire one up.  I guess I just have to work harder at distracting myself from wanting to follow the thoughts down some rabbit hole that will consume me  and leave in a long term sour mood.   That’s enough rambling for now, it’s too difficult to maintain a train of thought.
