choosing battles

i work to feed and house my family.
i would like to perform for these obligations.
i am struggling to find time to create my music.
i love my family.
i love my music.
where does the time come that all can flow congruently? i am faced with desicions daily of which way to turn. distractions occur regularly. when do i punch thru the time wall and find a way to enhance this wish? stumble stumble. a few choice notes and a nice melody...

i will finish this. i will live my life how i can...

who's the right me?

i love playing sweaty, divey bars. with loud rockus guitars.
but i am ready for a sit down intimate gigs.
wanna be calm and still and enjoy the music and the connection with the audience.
who is me?
dirty drunken drooling party
or somber, shoe gazing, sensitive compositions
many of the calmer artist turn fiery and wild at some point.
i seem bounce between the options.

chillin' with sinus'

well today i sit here with my son and play with trains.
and my sinus' are expanding with mucus, gross...
don't worry, all my loyal fans, it is not the swine flu. probably just a cold.
i wanna write and play my music, but my nose is against me.
in these times of non functioning airways i guess i must write the words and hear the frequencies.

too cold for pain
in a dark green stain
like mother says
you got so many ways
for an escape and bail
or flight off the rails
let me into your head
save yourself instead

i am today.

had a rough one.
want to produce but my recording box faltered this weekend.
think i could put my guitar on my back and roll...
Europe, japan, mountains of Venus.
i have always had some sort of escapist mentality, but at the same time a loyalty and rationalism that denies my run.
who can write the truth and put a melody that equates to functioning harmony. do i write a protest song, or one of lost love, or a psychedelic stroll thru tonal explorations. Did bob dylan explode the genius or did practice or experience, or love give him the jest...

i will continue this in the next time...

its a saturday

rockin' on the porch, singing songs.
bicycle leanin', buckets and shovels about...
scattered clouds on a may blue sky

enjoy your life.
