It is hard for me to be consistently positive these days. My dear wife is not feeling so well. I am a worrier and her health is foremost on my mind. I allow my thoughts to think the worst and then kick myself in the proverbial ass.
I have put a big ‘shout out’ that I urgently need employment. If only people knew how amazing I am and how committed I am to anything I put my mind to. I have wondered whether putting recovered alcoholic of twenty years on my resume would be a commendable thing or would it cause potential employers to doubt me? What do you think?
Well, at least the shit is thinning out a little. We may have found a cool little farmhouse to rent. I don’t think I would cope in suburbia. I am a private family guy and music being an integral part of my growth, at fairly high volumes will always be an issue with neighbours.
The magical Lady in my life starts a job on Monday; the little Poppits are rocking at school so I have plenty to be grateful for. I often think of suffering, starving, homeless people and suddenly find a tsunami of guilt wash over me for being a little ‘ungrateful.’
NOW....musically the journey is still positive. We are in the process of recording the second album. Taking the groove to a new level of intensity with a bigger mix, fuller sound and a lot more boom.
The first track, “Tattoo On My Hand” is a song about Government & Corporate control. It’s quite the topic of conversation in some of the vogue social circles. As a band we are committed to play together more and express worldly views through melodic opinion, give some of the tunes an ear & let me know what you think.
As always, I am sober, also after realising that Codeine was a potential threat to my well being and being Codeine free for nearly a month I feel fitter and stronger. NO dependency is a good thing. I am human and as venerable as the next addict. Be aware, be honest, be grateful and the beautiful spirit the envelops this planet will surely guide us through all of life’s crap.....
Onwards my fellow rockers & addicts.......I’m always here for a word if you need. Tune for this moment in my life:
