10-07-13-My Morning Thoughts: “The Meaning of Life” I figured it out this morning it is so simple I can’t believe I didn’t figure this out years ago!...the meaning of life is…darn…I lost my train of thought…now I have to start all over again…have a great day all and if you know the meaning of life please remind me…plain and simple.
10-04-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Camping” I always camped a lot as a child and subsequently our children camped a lot with us throughout their lives. I thought (and still do) it’s the coolest kind of vacation! Roughing it for a few days with your family and friends, making a fire to cook, fetching water listening to the non-city-sounds for a piece…I’m mean that’s living!...of course I always wanted to be one of the Walton boys too…Larry-Bob or Larry-Boy or maybe even Jason cause he played guitar and piano I think…LOL…just running through the wilderness with overalls on and for a while…not a care in the world…plain and simple.
10-03-13-My Morning Thoughts: “today’s music scene” Those of you into music or have been in the music scene for some years did you notice that you don’t hear the big record label scandals much anymore? Or the starving artist that sold songs for nothing and got ripped off or the big time artist that went broke even after they sold millions of albums because the moguls had them sign the dotted line to bankruptcy in the fine print! Or how about the entourages taking their friends for everything they had while the celebrity friend is on stage playing their heart out!...you know the big part of why this isn’t occurring much anymore is the internet and the independent artist are working! They’re everywhere and you don’t need a record deal to do it…if you’re a young musician and have some knowledge of how all this new wave of entertainment works you can do it all on your own if it’s what you really want to do. It’s still hard work…but it can be done…oh to be young (er) again…plain and simple.
10-02-13-My Morning Thoughts: “the crises to end all crises” Why is this country always in crises every morning I turn the TV on? It seems like nothing ever gets done in Washington anymore besides the back and forth hostility…which I must admit they are really good at disagreeing in Washington!...why can’t they sit down with a bill, any bill and start with checking off all the line items that they both agree on first! It’s just common sense to me! These elected congress people are suppose to be working for us, but how can anything get done if they start out by saying…”this bill is dead when it gets to me” before they even read it????? This is not the path to compromise! I’m not the smartest string on guitar but I can tell ya this…that my guitar sounds a whole lot better when all six of those strings are working together!...plain and simple.
10-01-13-My Morning Thoughts: “The Fall” As the leaves on the trees begin to change I’m always reminded that the cycle of life continues to turn and stops for no one. It’s a truly wondrous experience that puts most everything into perspective when you think about it because you and I are a part of it and share it together along with all who have come before and all yet to arrive…have a beautiful day all, take it in and…breath…plain and simple.
09-30-13-My Morning Thoughts: What’s the average life span of a male these days…76, 77? That means by statistics I only have about 23 years remaining of My Morning Thoughts…oh the madness of it all…plain and simple.
09-27-13-My Morning Thoughts: As a foolish child I “Begged, Borrowed and Stole”…then I grew up and I “Gave, Lent and Paid”…poetic justice I guess…be safe this weekend my friends and play nice together…plain and simple.
09-26-13-My Morning Thoughts: “TIME” You know the time of your life should never really be measured by time. If you’re having a wonderful occasion…what matters how long it lasts? Enjoy and cherish my friends because they may be few and far between or they may be plentiful, either way…live life…plain and simple.
09-25-13-My Morning Thoughts: Right around 12, 13 or so…I remember going to friends houses for kind-a-like parties I guess you would say. Ya there would be boys and girls and music and chips and black lights and florescent posters and bellbottom jeans and suede vests with fringes and spin the bottle and beads instead of doors and older boys and girls and…well ok that’s enough, I’m stopping there for now…have a great day all and remember don’t ever be ashamed of where you came from cause it helped us all get to where we are right now as far as I’m concerned…there is a reason to the rhyme it just doesn’t always make sense while you’re still trying to figure out how you made it out of those original reasons to get here…I don’t even know what I just said!...I need more coffee!…ANYWAY, GOOD MORNING ALL!!!!!…plain and simple.
09-24-13-My Morning Thoughts: BALD? Hey, I was just thinking…how come there weren’t any bald headed hippies????? You did have to let your hair grow to be a member right? I know in the 70’s we had long hair and a lot of us left over second generation (errrrs) listening to our older siblings music hippie types…all had long hair at one time or another didn’t we?...I guess it just wouldn’t have been as much fun if I supported the hair style my heredity has “be stolen” upon me at this time…and I tell ya, it’s really hard to braid bald too…plain and simple.
