Monday, November 13, 2023 - Uplifting

I’m wanting to write something uplifting today, and I’m wanting to explore the purpose of being uplifting. I know it’s probably just a different take on where I often go, but I think it’s worth discussing. I believe in being positive and putting good into the world. It’s too easy to complain and bring everyone down with a bad attitude. If I let the badness seep into me that I see around me every day, then I don’t help anyone including myself. This is such a wondrous world that we inhabit for such a short time. I could give you spiritual reasons to uplift others, but I think it’s better to just look at how it makes you feel when you prefer another person or seek to help someone. I honestly don’t understand why people don’t just do this for the good feelings they get. It’s an endorphin rush that makes your whole day better. It also lets you escape from your own cares, and who doesn’t want to do that? So I encourage you to try to be uplifting in your thoughts and actions. It’s something I tell myself every day.


What have I been up to?

I had 9 senior facilities that I neglected to write about last week. They all went very well, and I really enjoyed seeing all the folks and sharing some music and laughter. I was doing a lot of patriotic songs since Veterans Day was Saturday.

My Wednesday online show was doing songs I haven’t done for my online shows before, and I had a blast. There are so many really sweet songs that I have learned over the years that are very rewarding to sing and share. That’s some of the uplifting I can do with my online friends.

My Sunday online show was doing favorites and requests as always, and there were some fine requests and good surprises. I love these folks!


What am I up to this week?

I have 11 senior facilities this week including one I only get to play for a couple times a year, so I’m going to cherish every moment.

My Wednesday online show 7-8:45 mountain time will be songs I’ve never done yet again. I had so much fun at last week’s Wednesday show, that I decided to pick another bunch of songs that I love and never have played for the group. Come on out and hear some great tunes and get some nice surprises.

My Sunday online show 7-8:45 mountain time will be favorites and requests, and I always look forward to springing some favorites on the folks and seeing what songs they want to hear. It’s usually a really good time, so come on out!


My wall calendars for 2024 are available now. These are my favorite pictures from the past year of sunrise walks I make with Beau each morning. The price is $15 each plus shipping and taxes, and they are printed on demand at Here are the links for them:

That’s it for this week. The holiday season is fast approaching, and I’m thankful once again for family and friends. We’ll do some thankful songs before Thanksgiving.

Best always,
