Spring & Being Sprung

Tonight's selections come from a question of faith. Is it blind? Is it set like an anchor in the bottom of the gut? Is it a screw-in base at the stem of the brain, kinda like a lightbulb?

Is it going through the motions and knowing that showing up day after day (even when unmotivated, let's be real) is just as much a marker of growth as reaching a milestone?

The following definitions are of words that sonically encapsulate the open-ended themes and emotions that went into making this playlist:

1. the ability or tendency to float in water or air or some other fluid.

1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

And what is faith without gratitude?
