When a much younger Tom Elvidge was a world traveling post-grad, he filled his spare time by composing a top 5 of pretty much anything that came to mind. Subsequently, a hand written version in a notebook was transcribed into a composite offering mounted in a picture frame as a gift.  Over the last couple of years, this idea has evolved...
