Today’s Song

Yet another beautiful person gone too soon.  I have fond memories of listening to much of Chris Cornell’s acoustical work while having my lower leg piece done on my right leg…during each 4-5 hr session (4 total sessions), my tattoo artist played Cornell’s music and it just went along so well with that time, what I was thinking and feeling, what I had been through up to that point.  RIP Chris.

Soundgarden – “Rusty Cage”

Songs for Today

There are so many songs that swirl around in my head and emotions I feel when I think about my drinking days and my path to sobriety.  Here are a handful that stand out; most revolve around the prison that is alcohol and/or drug use, and the path to recovery.  Others simply take me back to old memories during that time of my life.  However, there is to this day some music I have a hard time listening to because I would play it so much while drinking, and I feel triggered by it.  Those songs/that music have not been included here.  This is also far from a thorough list of music about addiction and recovery – these are songs that have spoken to me over the years and I feel that I relate to.
