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!
I was fooled by cloudy skies this morning on the recycling route, thinking it was not going to be hot. What a beggar’s dream that was. That’s kind of what today’s song is about. There’s no reason to think about being in cool weather all day long or it’s just torturing myself. Also, it’s even worse to constantly think about how hot it is all the time (like I did today). I used to work in Georgia though, this really isn’t that bad. On top of that, it’s 130 degrees in Baghdad for criminey’s sake!
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.
Today’s my birthday and it’s funny how things like facebook connects you with so many people on that day. I actually didn’t even check it until late tonight and was amazed at how many people wished me happy birthday. And looking through them you actually connect with the people who sent it to you (even it you don’t respond).
That’s what inspired me to do a birthday themed song. Actually, I’m not one to care much about my birthday. It’s not something I overwhelmingly want to celebrate. Anyway, thanks for listening!
