Over the years, I have developed a sense of devotion to certain bands and authors. These are artists that I have purchased multiple CDs or books from and have gotten much enjoyment from their music. I consider them to be part of my Circle of Trust. To get into my Circle of Trust, these artists and authors must be pretty darn good. It takes more than getting a song played during a jeans commercial or to appear on Oprah to get into my Circle of Trust. It must be earned. Fortunately, I have discovered some cool new bands and authors this year, 2012, which I am happy to induct into my Circle of Trust.
