Heartbreak & Reality

Getting through my final Open Mic night in Abilene, TX was not an easy thing to do, and those familiar with my condition/situation read the pain on my face no matter how well I tried to mask it in a smiling, brave face. Thanks to those that were able to show up for my last go 'round here XO!

I will be playing one last open mic night in Abilene, TX for a good long while (it looks like). I don't know when I will be back this way. Tennessee is calling me back.

New Song Release!

“Twixt The Clock & The Compass (Bookmarks of Time)”

We are all controlled by two main things in this life. The passing of time and the passage(s) we choose to take. There is a beauty found in our aging. There so many things we as adults are able to enjoy and the pleasures of our intercourses cannot be fully appreciated by a youngster. Maybe that’s why a child can’t wait to be “big.”

I would rather sit and listen to a musician who has “wood-shedded” his time and is well-versed (“practiced-up” as it were) on a given instrument than to sit through a screechy, ill-timed, out-of-tune player.

Yet the simplicity of innocence possesses an intriguing quality. The wonder of a child’s eyes at discovering things for the first time is beautiful, and awe-inspiring. Yet, lines on a face of age are riddled with stories from their life. Beautiful.

Thus let time go. We cannot control it, let alone contain it. All we can do with the clock is appreciate its moments. And some of those moments that are given to us become treasured mementos in our mind’s book of memories, snapshots in our time, forever sealed on special pages (Bookmarks of Time).

Grip the compass. We CAN control that. Because each day/night presents new opportunities and choices for each and every one of us. Everybody is given a compass at birth. What we do with it is up to us. Yes, there are unforeseeable stones that jump up in our pass way. Troubles, infirmities, etc. that can/will affect our direction. “Thy burdens are greater than mine” as one writer said. Regardless, do this next thing with dedication, with determination. Develop an indomitable spirit for your dreams. And lastly…

Set your goals early!!! Do no harm, and simply strive toward your goals. SET THEM HIGH. Dream big. STRIVE! STRIVE! STRIVE TO MAKE YOUR DREAMS THRIVE!
