Man, twenty-six weeks. I love it. I don't know if I've made it clear, but I haven't had the fortitude to keep up with something this long in a while. That's how much this book means to me.
On to the Paladin Playlist! Today I'm sharing a little song that I loved from the moment I heard it. Now, just about all the songs from the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack are amazing, but this one stands out. Most are exciting, get your blood pumping. Some are dark and sorrowful. But this one, Stella by Moor is... quiet. There's nothing inherently wrong with the song being so different from the rest of the tracks. It doesn't NEED to be a tear jerker or excite you. This one just makes you reflect.
Right or wrong, our pasts are filled with moments that have built us into who we are and a song like Stella by Moor is a song that lets you take a moment and reflect on all of that. It doesn't demand your attention. It doesn't take you on a wild ride. It doesn't ask anything of you. It just is.
It is soft. It is gentle. It is there when your'e ready to pay attention, but does not force anything on you. It's perfect for those amazingly soft characters that sit in the background. The ones that might be forgotten if you didn't draw the plot toward them. It's gorgeous. It's unassuming. I absolutely love it.
Please enjoy by the Seatbelts.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
