From Amanda Stevens:
This song will always bring me back to summer road trips, and of course “Into the Wild” (a favorite book and movie or mine!) I love the message of this song and powerful Eddie Vedder/mandolin combination, which never fails to bring me out of a haze. The song is all about having faith in yourself and in life, and plodding onward with intent and optimism even if you don’t know where the path leads.
I pray to God that I find a way to approach life with this mentality, and that I can appreciate each day as a mini-adventure (à la Emile Hirsch in “Into the Wild,” but on a smaller scale!)
