Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays friends! Time to pop that Turkey, Ham or in my case Tri-Tip into the oven, or for that matter what ever else turns your taste buds on! I hope none of you or yours are wanting for anything this holiday season! And for those no longer with us on this earthly plane, you will have our love and thoughts to fill you up! Peace and Love, Ray William Roldan

Explaing message in my song Man Of Steel

This song came to me all at once! I had written everything I had all the verses in one sitting and then my buddy Mark helped with the Chorus chord changes and I wrote the rest of the tune sitting in the studio. I didn't have a message when I started, I just let the universe flow the words to me! That happens a lot of the time with me. Later I looked at it and figured how some one could get so wrapped up in there "Job" or "what there trying to Be" that they forget what they actually are! Being a dad or a Mom is much more important then being rich or powerful or "able to fly"! I figure Jesus was called the Son of God! Meaning God is a Parent! Most folks never seem to figure that part out. In this story the daughter definitely understands that. Kids almost always understand the importance of a parent. Part of this "Supermans beingness is the fact that he is a father, take that away and he ain't nothing special. Embrace that and every father can be a Super Hero!
