Revived

Hmm..

I only write a post when I feel led to come here.  Obviously, with life and things, (and I know you’ve been dying to ask) I do not come here often.  Perhaps that will change.

Or not.

🙂

I have had the best past year.  In short, Growing pains.  To make a short story more intelligible, Very exciting things continue to unfold in their time for me – but also for you.  Additionally,  we repeatedly become elements in the moments of others.  Let that sink in for a moment.

 

Someone incredible I know played a song for me one day while we were connecting.  It was about elements.  Today, I broadcast my appreciation for those elements, and all the elements in play during the course of my life.  Today I am grateful for elements.  In each of these, my moments become extraordinary; into every moment an element presents itself for appreciation.  Today, I bring my awareness to the elements among which I have become, and continue to become.  As with love, elements are always present;  they are like (and literally ARE) the bits that make up everything.  If you remove one, everything beyond the presence or absence of that element changes.

 

Thank you, elements.  Thank you for your timely presence.  If not for you, I would not be who I am, do what I do, or have what I have.  Let us all be open to the flow.

Cheers.

Now.

Always bring your best because someone important is always watching.

Brand New Joy

There are always peaks and valleys.  One cannot appreciate the peak without first walking in the depths of the valley. The valley is deep and the view is confined, but at the peak one can see all the places in the valley that are yet to be tread; and the view is quite breathtaking. With such a full and rewarding life, it can still be a challenge to find the right path… but sometimes it pays to listen to your discomfort, so that you can know the places that you have not been…

…and go there instead.

The Sun Also Rises

There is a saying.. actually, there are many sayings, but I refer to only one. It is evocative, stimulating, and irrelevant because the moment has passed.

The Last Sunset

Live.
You have a responsibility to do this.
Do not pose or motion.
Your song has a melody, and its story will be what others say about you.
Be everything you are, and nothing you are not.
Your story has brilliant color; never dwell in the grays of inbetween.  Push for your desires and believe. Be truthful with every word.  Be passionate with every feeling… love with all of who you are. 
Sing out!
Remain shameless with your story.
There is only one you.
Nobody who loves you will forget who you are.

I love you Robin.
I learned much from your life, and will sing your songs with passion.
Farewell , dear friend.

Mobile Stationary

As we change and grow, others will remain the same.  Ones we have come to know, now strangers without names.
These are the pieces
Pieces of us
Who we become
From dust to dust.

Time to grow

The studio moves. The shop moves. The boy moves. Music is coming.  My truck is going to sound like righteous anger. Or was that the project.. no, definitely the truck.

I have a brand new scope, and it does more than just freshen your breath.
If you think you knew me you were wrong.

…and so was I.
