LIFE IS A WEB OF COMPLICATIONS.

Cold fact: not everyone will be wealthy
Warm truth: we can all be comfortable

Why then do we make life uneasy for each other? Why does it seem like we derive so much pleasure in oppressing and putting each other down? 
Ever been gobsmacked—completely lost for words as you witness how people treat their helps/maids/aides? Why do we behave like we are also not of flesh and blood?  Why do we act like breath isn’t a gift and we have not a single idea what could become of our existence the next second? THE NEXT SECOND. 
It’s puzzling how man finds it fit to regard his neighbor with contempt and disgust because they cannot afford the life he has, oblivious to the constant that the earth still rotates and tables indeed turn. 
Ironically, nature has chosen to insult us by labeling us the most advanced animals when in fact the lowest of the lows of animals coexist and look out for each other just fine. “Well I’m going through a lot” 
Is this really a plausible reason to be shitty to the next person? We ALL have our battles, you may never know until you hear the next man speak...as if the essence of life is not just to remain alive. 
Take a moment to reflect, does it really take that much to alleviate the next person’s suffering? Our answers may vary, and if you fall on the side that believes it does take a lot, then just be empathetic; be sensitive to someone else’s sufferings, sometimes all a person needs is to feel someone at least, understands. 
Mother Nature birthed us all, you’re just privileged.

You only need power when you need to do something evil else, love is enough to get everything done” - Charlie Chaplin.

  • #musicmonday Taylor and I first saw The Seldom Scene at the Bristol Rhythm and Roots festival in 2006, a few weeks before our wedding. We drove up on a Friday with my band mate Susie for our two performances on Saturday. That night we were free to explore the other musical groups working the festival. We spent time watching Junior Brown and his wife blaze through their set on Main Street but at some point Tay and I wandered into an small theatre and ended up half way into the Seldom Scenes set. They sang Bob Dylan’s “Boots of Spanish Leather” and I was hooked. The group focused on the pieces of music I revere (Harmony, instrumentation, arrangement...etc) and I found myself squeezing Taylor’s hand in delight at the performance. When their set ended I wondered how I’d love 28 years and never heard of them...? I made a note in my program to investigate them further upon my return to Nashville. ISometime later I found their second release at a record shop...I remembered how much I enjoyed them in Bristol so I happily picked it up for $5. The recording (which is from the early 70’s) propelled me back to the performance in Bristol. They’ve such a mastery of their sound and they interpret songs like no other. The first track on the record is “Last Train From Poor Valley” written by Norman Blake (one of my favorite songwriters) and the rendition still levels me. The harmony on the chorus takes Bill Monroe’s “High Lonesome Sound” to another dimension. The high harmony of John Duffey inspired me to labor at expanding my range...though I’ll never get into their atmosphere. Given it’s early 70’s time-frame it stands out as non-traditional, progressive and inventive folk/bluegrass unlike anything before it...it’s really a wonderful listen. Especially in the Fall of the year. #musicmonday Taylor and I first saw The Seldom Scene at the Bristol Rhythm and Roots festival in 2006, a few weeks before our wedding.

  • #music #monday : I cropped the cover. I don't know why. Anyway...."Fear Inoculum" took the band, Tool, 13 years to make. From what I hear,  each member had to take care of things in their separate lives along the way. They still finished it. That's what I needed to hear. They took their time, and dropped it in a differently wired and cut-off time in music….. There are new and old fans ,and in the mix, a someone at Pitchfork takes it personally instead of just calling it "outdated" and keep it moving....But they still finished it.

From what songs I've heard so far, it is a better display of SKILL than most current  younger stars' albums/singles on the charts  that have taken less than a few years. It was nice to read in the comments how people "traveled" with the music. It was a reminder that it can still be for the sake of creating and for the sake of music and for the people who need to hear... no matter what the reception of everyone else is. Sometimes, it has to be done. That is what I needed to see.
