How much of your life is under your control? Is life just a series of random and chaotic events? Today on the Spiritual Spiral, I felt compelled to talk a little bit about the randomness of life. I go on a bike ride each weekend and I'm always surprised at how often I see people in their cars texting and staring down at their phones. Do they even care that they sometimes come close to hitting me while they're driving? Politicians and leaders want you to believe they have your best interests in mind and everything is "under control" but I can't help but think life is sheer chaos. I also play a clip from the Marc Maron show where he talks about the torture that comes from being an artist. I spent the last four years writing a book and the last year producing my next record and while the process has had many moments of pure joy, the process of creation is also filled with pain and torture. And now that my record and book are done and close to being released, I think to myself, what does it take to get anyone to listen or care?
