Today’s song is called “Rest” and I guess you could call it a fantasy on my part. My motto is “if I’m awake I’m working”. That’s basically how it has to be to get all of the things I do done. And I still don’t have quite the time I need. I sleep six hours a night which usually works out okay, it’s just that every few weeks I’ve got to really try and sleep a long time to catch up. But I usually just lay and bed and think about all of the stuff I need to do.. Oh well. I’ll live vicariously through this song.
I’ll post the song when I get back to Asheville Wednesday. Thanks for listening.
Another brutal day (psychically) recycling today. The economy must be getting better because people seem to be throwing a lot more stuff away. And on the positive side for our business the price of recyclables has gone up.
Cardboard went up a dollar (4.5 cents a pound) and newspaper went up fifty cents (3 cents a pound) which makes a world of difference when you’re picking up four or five thousand pounds worth of stuff a day.
Although we have to pay to dump plastic and glass.
Anyway, something got me thinking of a character when I sat down tonight. He is an old man nearing the end of his life and not able to do much but sleep and sit around trying to remember things about his life.
That’s the just of “Epithet”. Thanks for listening!!
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
