Shenry Christmas CD Swap: The Path

“Path” is a “trodden track or way. A road, way, or track made for a particular purpose” (Answers.com).

This presupposes actually knowing one’s particular purpose; sometimes it’s an act of meandering along while hoping a purpose will eventually make itself known—defined by me as getting through life. Tell me someone who has never made a false turn on their path and I’ll add their name to my Big Liar List.

Thus were my thoughts whilst compiling songs for the annual
Shenry Christmas CD utilizing the theme “The Path,” make of it what you will. I’ve opted for reflecting my inherent confusion about life’s convoluted path and end with the point at which I am now.

My resulting song compilation is as follows:

  1. Nowhere Man (The Beatles)
  2. Fakin’ It (Simon & Garfunkel)
  3. T’Ain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do (Saffire: The Uppity Blues Women)
  4. Gone Fishin’ (General Johnson & The Chairman of the Board)
  5. Everytime You Go Away (Paul Young)
  6. Wherever You Will Go (The Calling)
  7. Don’t Look Back (The Temptations)
  8. Bump in the Road (Johnny Lang)
  9. Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf)
  10. Kashmir (Led Zeppelin)
  11. Long As I Can See the Light (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
  12. The River of Dreams (Billy Joel)
  13. As Long as You Follow (Fleetwood Mac)
  14. End of the Line (Traveling Wilburys)
  15. Good Intentions (Toad The Wet Sprocket)
  16. Dignity (Bob Dylan)
  17. Change the World (Eric Clapton)
  18. At Last (Etta James)
  19. Roadrunner (Microwave Dave & The Nukes)

You keep a list of Big Fat Liars? I have to admit, I don't need a list. I don't forget them, usually.
I tend to think that the purpose, is to live our moments as authentically as possible. Stay in the moment, as much as we can. It's that whole nothingness thing that is so hard to explain to people who don't understand the more eastern thoughts on such things. They tend to think that it means absence of God, or whatever, when actually it means the abscence of all the distractions that keep you from connecting to "your God" or the spirit that is truly yourself. If we do that, then I think the rest of it will take care of itself. No faking it. Honesty is the key, but sometimes, I suppose, being honest with oneself is the hardest thing to do. That requires listening to that part of ourself that "knows" the answers

You've compiled such an interesting collection here Dear Junie Moon.
