Monday, September 21, 2020 - All I Know

I've been thinking a lot about what I’ve learned in my longish but not ultimately long life. In my younger years I was kind of cocky, and I definitely ruffled some feathers even though I was relatively tame. I had some wisdom early on, but it didn’t keep me from making a lot of dumb mistakes and miscues that hurt my relationships. As I aged I continued to think that lots of work was the best way to go - sometimes avoiding deeper situations just to make another buck. As I went through mid-life I gained some perspective on health and well-being - trying to put some continuity in my everyday existence. Now that I’ve almost reached retirement age (even though I don’t plan to retire) I look back on possessions and situations with a different eye. Security is important, but relationships and caring for others seems to be all that ultimately matters. Through it all I see more and more that no matter what your race or religion, social status or politics, wealth or location, the love of friends and family is all that matters. That’s all I know.

What have I been up to? 

My outdoor senior and facility shows went very well last week. The temperature has dropped just enough to make them very comfortable. It’s so good to see these folks.  

My Thursday show doing Chuck Pyle's music went swimmingly. I love Chuck's music so much, and I even got to have some surprise guests along on the show like Gordon Burt who played fiddle with Chuck for 30 years.  

My Sunday show was a big crowd with a lot of fun. I cherish these nights of camaraderie with so many good friends even when they are crazy wild.

What am I up to this week? 

I have senior and facility gigs almost every day either online or outdoors this week. I absolutely love seeing these folks.  

Thursday my online show 7-8:30 mountain time will feature Fall shows. I have a bunch of great Fall songs, and I figured that rather than doing another artist I would do a variety of Fall songs this week. I think you’ll like the surprises I have in store for us.

Sunday my online show 7-8:30 will have a variety of requests and favorites as always. It’s amazing some of the songs I’m learning for folks. Please tune in if you can.

That’s it for this week. I wanted to say something more profound above about life, but I think it was pretty well summed up by what I said. Love is ultimately all that matters.
