It's a wonderful life
I grew up loving that movie and Jimmy Stewart, too. I know it's hokey, but it really touches me. I am the kind of person who always looks at the glass half full, well usually more than half full. I see the bright side of everything and live my life believing that all the terrible things that happen lead to something good. There's a great Sonny Terry/Brownie McGee song that I've been singing lately, "There Will Be a Better Day." The verses talk about set-backs, "My burden's so heavy, I can hardly see. It seems like everyone's coming down on me ..." But then the hook is, "but that's alright, I don't worry anymore. There will be a better day." That pretty much sums it up. There always is a better day somewhere down the line.
And, here I am starting a new life - again. This life is really good so far. My music is doing well. I'm writing songs again and learning new ones. I'm playing with lots of people and continuing to challenge myself. I have a new love, am feeling alive again and am finally thriving. I couldn't ask for much more than this. But I'm not fooling myself into believing that this is it. I know there will be more hardships down the line. I'm just noticing how I deal with them. I just keep going with the flow, riding the tide and somehow staying afloat in these rough seas. I grew up near the ocean, so it must be in my blood. Meanwhile, I'm still working on the CD and writing my memoirs. I'll post another one here soon. Oh, and if you haven't checked out the video section lately, be sure to go watch the "Summertime" video from the Friday the 13th show.
