Soundtrack 2016: The Year That Nothing Happened

An annual end of year tradition for me is to create a playlist, or soundtrack if you will, describing my life over the course of the past year using songs I discovered within that time frame.

Here is the Soundtrack to 2016. . . click for the playlist on Spotify or YouTube
(All I wanted from this year was for nothing to happen. Nothing good, nothing bad. Just a plateau of time. I didn't want or need anything more or less than what I already had. So the prayer was just to be. And, in the end, this was hands down my favorite year of life so far.)
