I listen to a book on CD every day driving up and down the mountain from Asheville to Morganton and back. I was thinking today about all the biographies I’ve heard (at least 50). I retain the information so well when I first hear it but after time I start to forget all the intricate stories and details. That’s very sad to me, but yet at the same time, it makes it so I can go back and listen to the books again and enjoy it all over. Hello “The Life of Marco Polo”! That’s my favorite book that I’ve listened to that I’ve already forgotten.
This song is more about someone who goes through school and life who doesn’t quite figure it out until he gets a life education. Thanks for listening!
I’m catching back up today after being a song behind for about a week. I’ve got another one almost ready to go that I’ll finish a little later today.
My amp is still in the shop so not much electric guitar in the near future. Which is fine for now. After all I have another 341 songs to write for this blog.
“Revelation of Education Dedication” is about enjoying the journey even when you’re upgrading yourself. It actually sounds a little like “Give it More Time” a song off of the upcoming Chris Cates & the Master Plan album.
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.
