Fire and Rain
Sorry for such a short post, but some things came up beyond my control. Come to think of it, most of this gig on Earth is beyond our control, huh?
My song of the Day on Facebook was James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain.” My personal health has been good so far, but as a doc I’ve seen a lot of sadness. Sometimes I feel like a war survivor, and wonder why I have been so lucky. It can all change so fast. All I can say is hold your people close and always be prepared for Eternity. We are all only temporary visitors here on Earth.
I’ll be in Chattanooga Friday, July 30 at Smoking Ed’s BBQ for a late lunch, (1:30) and then Signal Mountain Opry that night. There might be a bit of blue in my bluegrass, but I’ll solider on. If you live in that area I hope you’ll come visit. I’d love to see anyone interested in the arts and a life of grace and dignity.
The Lord gave me a decent doctor brain and I can make do as a mando side-man and part singer, but if I sing lead I’ll set the music back a decade. My goals with “The Mandolin Case” were multifactorial, but one was to help the music I love and pay tribute to what it has done for me over a lifetime in the doc gig. I’ll need all the help I can get and would love to jam with you, but if you can sing lead I’ll leave that part open for you.
We all gotta be what we are and there’s no use for old Doc to pretend to be a singer, so y’all cover me if you can. See you there.
