It’s 0603… Daylight Savings Time left us yesterday morning but the good old internal clock said, ‘It’s time to get up.’ DST or not, it’s still dark out and we are well into Fall for sure. Living in the country as I do, I find myself really tuned into the purpose we give to seasons… sowing… reaping… the rhythm of life that moves us all. I think of the seasons in my own life and like everyone else, I wish I had more time. That thought would have never crossed my mind when I was younger… life was an endless stream of summers and time was of no consequence. All this said, I am the most fortunate of men. At an age when my Father seemed to search relentlessly for things to occupy his time in a meaningful way, I am still able to be not only an active participant in my chosen profession… but still productive.
I just finished work on my new CD project for Red House Records and we are slated for a February 17, 2015 release date. Out of eleven songs I have four originals. Three new ones and a reprise of Bar Room Crystal Ball. Why redo an old song like this? Because I wanted the words to be heard and in my current recordings, you can understand all my words. As a song writer, today I want the words to be understood.
I have talked about this before, but for me today… it is all about the story… the fact that the guitar is my vehicle for this tell is incidental. Of course this does not minimize the guitar in my life… not at all. Without the guitar my life would have been of far less consequence.
The seasons come, and the seasons go, and for today I am enjoying my place in Fall.
More will be revealed!
