Gotta find the queen of all my dreams

Been listening to a lot of Philip Glass while I work on edits lately; I haven't found a living composer as thoughtful, or as guiding. Editing calls for a very focused attention to detail - many times from just one of those details, comes the very essence of a written piece. Figuring out what to cut, and what to reveal can be as gratifying as listening to the right song at the right moment - and it always involves some sort of journey.   Philip Glass is my trusted navigator, although I do reach for a little Zeppelin to jumpstart my ride every now and again.
