September 29th “Living Well is the Best Revenge”

What a day.  Rainy day on the recycling route.  Got home from my twelve hour work day / commute to a phone call that I was supposed to be at Mt. Mitchell playing a show with the whole band tonight.  Undoubtedly we had made a major scheduling error.   Anyway, I managed to get a shower and get in the car and speed up there to start with my patented ‘funny golf songs’ before the boys showed up to complete the jam.  Now I’m back home finishing today’s song late and needing to go to sleep because I’m live on “Charlotte Today” WCNC TV in nine hours.   Oh yeah, I just realized I haven’t learned the song I’m playing yet.  Is it possible to play “White Anglo Saxon Protestant” on acoustic guitar?   We’ll see.  Thanks for listening!

August 22nd “Breathing Means Dreaming”

What can I say, I’ve always been a dreamer.  I’m in my mid-thirties and I’m still dreaming about my future. That’s kind of why I’ve been doing this song a day blog this year; so I can honestly say that I’ve put in the work to move forward with my songwriting and music career.  I also wanted to test my sneaking suspicion that I had the capacity to create every day.   Now if I could just create that massive fortune that I’ve been dreaming about.     Thanks for listening!

July 27th “Where Did Summer Go When I Grew Up”

I kicked butt on the old recycling route today.   Ten hours straight with no break.  The funny thing is I was working extra hard to get a few hours off tomorrow.   But tomorrow, I’ll probably start working ahead (like I was doing today) to knock a few hours off of Thursday.  Hence, what happened to summer?  Going to school as a kid and having all those months off does not prepare you for what summers are going to be like later in life.  You mean I have to work instead of going to the pool?

May 27th “Who You Wanted to Be in Life”

I’m sure this song came from a bumper sticker I probably saw one day driving up the mountain.  Am I who I wanted to be in life?  Probably not.   I should have finished graduate school or a million other things but I’m happy so does it matter.  I’m still playing music that’s always been part of my big vision.   I’m not making millions doing it yet but at least I’m still trying I guess.
