Ain’t It The Truth?!

“Your weariness could catch up with you today…..”
retired
This has been one of the busiest, most exhausting periods of time in my entire life!  I have taken to turning my phone off for days at a time, burying my head in my books and doing little else except walking my puppy, cleaning my house and cooking food.  Last night, my husband asked me if I would go see a movie that he is considering centering a play around.  I had to laugh.  The mountain of school work that grows higher by the minute will not topple for another two weeks after this one.  Right now, it seems endless.  I just have to keep chipping away at it…..two papers this week, more statistics, data analysis, discussion questions….sigh….Indeed, my weariness just MIGHT catch up with me today!
Going back to bed for an hour….

Thank you…to my beautiful friend.

A special friend sent me this video this morning.  You can see his reflection in my glasses.

Jon Gomm….now THIS is a GUITARIST!! (WOW!)

I have an old friend in Houston that plays in this style.  This is Jon Gomm, a REAL guitarist.   The first time I ever saw anyone play in a style close to this, it was when Kaki King played at the TED talks.  Here are videos of both of them, and both are well worth a look-see.  I adore this kind of playing.  It is innovative, and not just the same ‘ol..same ‘ol, overworked, overused crap that 50 million other guitarists are playing.

I love a musician that thinks outside the box and carves new paths into the music world.  These two do that.  Jack White is another. Chris Whitley was another.

I’m really digging this new wave of talent.    It is fresh, interesting, intelligent sounding.  Pure.
