Music’s messages have always haunted and/or inspired me. After listening to the song Chasing Pirates by Norah Jones, I felt an urge to launch this blog to “chase information” about my favorite songs and their artists. Oftentimes, however, I found myself off course.
Since its debut in 2013, “Chasing Pirates” has included posts about a variety of subjects: education, politics, spirituality, artists & their music and fellow bloggers’ posts. That’s why, if you search by theme, you’ll notice other topics besides music. What can I say … I have many different interests, and my mind wanders.
The bulk of my posts 2015 – 2016 were political; I had big plans to research each of the many Republican candidates but was derailed by Donald Trump’s surprising and quick ascendancy. Like a lot of others, I’m weary of the political landscape, so I’ve come “home” for escape and rest — so to speak — by returning to my original plan for this blog … Music.
