Back when this blog was more personal, I started a series called “People Who Create Awesome Things,” but I ran out of steam and quit doing them a while back. Well, I had a little time this afternoon and thought I’d use it to write about another one of those people, one of my all-time favorite singers, Jon Foreman.
I’m a true introvert so I need a lot of alone time to recharge, especially when there’s more stress than usual in my life, as there was last Fall. During that season, I got into the habit of leaving work on my supper break and walking down by the river, a nice little half-hour of solitude that got me through the shift. Sometimes I would put headphones on and listen to music; and it was during one of those times (I remember the occasion well) that I first heard the song for today’s episode of People Who Create Awesome Things: November Rain by Guns N’ Roses.
