Just Words.

The other day…

I was talking to an old friend in NY…swapping stories of how life just happens. How/why we do what we do…and so on. We then stumbled on talking about how there is this overwhelming desire for people to feel connected.  To be heard. To not feel invisible in the masses.  To listen, understand, and then learn.

It’s about the seek and you shall find.  The give, the take, and the you shall be blessed. It’s living.  It’s trying.  It’s life.

We laughed about the greatness of musicians being able to marry words with sounds…sometimes creating the perfect union. That is until I grab a hold of the spirit in the morning and kill it with my tone deaf vocals, words misspoken and rhythm-less dance moves (Roxie doesn’t care if we’re off beat.)  Regardless, it’s all still very romantic.

And then I started with my…I should have…I could have…I wish I had…the I took it all for granted.  I can’t wait to get back to my beloved NY soon.  The food, the people…

Anyway, this morning the words were in this song…by The Whitest Boy Alive
