I woke up around 9:15 today and like most days: my wife and dog were sitting on the bed trying to gently shake me awake. My dog Sophie runs in normally and starts licking my face which I know is a form of dog-love but I wish I could brush her teeth first. My daughter was out in her pack and play – the moment I come into view she starts jumping up and down repeating the syllable “da.”
For some reason I find myself in front of Disney movies just about every morning like we’ve established a routine. Today we watched Secret of the Wings which is a part of Tinker Bell series on Netflix. Our normal circuit has movies like Moana, Trolls, Sing, Boss Baby, Puss in Boots, Finding Dory and Shrek. Anything with a good soundtrack is always best but in some rare occasions we skip movie and go straight to music on the TV. My little girl loves live performances on YouTube which I think means she’s going to be a performer but who knows. I only hope that whatever she does she will be comfortable, happy and safe! I love my little girlie! We are just a few months away from meeting our little boy – due the end of August! So excited to meet him!
The world has been taking some interesting steps lately and it’s both fun and hard to watch. People all over the country are carrying out large acts of hate and anger, there aren’t many good examples for young men anymore, and entitlement is at an all-time high.
It’s a rough time to live in. It’s rough for everyone – not just you and I. I think we have been so “connected” that we forgot what it felt like to be apart from information so now we want everything right away. With everything so readily accessible – patience has lost its appeal. RIGHT NOW! Everything needs to happen right now and that’s stressful.
If you unplugged for 2 days how would you feel on day 3?
Things to think about!!!
I’ll be playing at Cerveza Jacks now every Wednesday night 6-10 so come on out! I’ll see ya then!
So this weeks cover is Chris Stapleton’s Broken Halos. Next weeks choices are Hozier and Andy Grammar.
Looking forward to next week because it will be the first Live Looping video that I’ll post. If you follow me on Facebook you’ll me go live and here a little bit of it in the background from live shows but this will be the first time for YouTube! I’m super nervous and excited and I hope I do not mess the sound up. I’m hoping that some friends out there would be willing to help me out with it – we’ll see! Hopefully you all have subscribed to the YouTube channel: every week during April and May I’m having fans pick the artist for the following weeks cover. I’m excited for the following weeks to come! Please leave some artists you’d like a video of and who knows a bonus video may come out early!
Don’t forget you can donate to help me keep making music on the home page!
