Backyard Parties

After 2 years of cancellation the historic Heatherfest happened last night and it was one for the books.

End of summer

Float

Float

this is life on a cloud


why worry about it now 

fingers open and catch nothing 


I can’t hold time

do you recognize me 


from another place


am I familiar to you

let’s dance on this cloud 


together for awhile


Media

It’s hard to understand what’s worse:  Legacy broadcast media (news media institutions established before the digital era, such as ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, NPR and NBC) publications and commentaries or that people believe and defend it.   I wrote a song about it in 2020 called “Smoke.”

When the futures on hold and you got to sit and wait
and the engine won’t turn over
and you’re dead in the water
when the smoke clears will you finally see
what others have known for years

Wake up to the life you’re living
they give dollars for your time
and steal ideas from your mind
Smoke is there to blind your vision
See through it with your thoughts
just don’t use your eyes

I watch my heros spread their ideas worldwide
then they got paid and they got rich and I watched their purpose die
What were they thinking while they were drinking to their numbers
How come they’re always telling stories about when they had nothing

Wake up to the life that you’re missing
they give dollars for your time
and steal ideas from your mind
Smoke is there to blind your vision
See through it with your thoughts
Don’t believe their lies

There was smoke in the air in the morning
everyone ignored the warnings
and these voices from the past
telling us we may not make it through the night

Wake up to the life that you’ve been given
they give dollars for your time
and steal ideas from your mind
Smoke is there to blind your vision
See through it with your thoughts
Don’t use your eyes

Hard to believe I missed this one

It’s a challenge to stay on top of everything. Despite using this one as the “warm up” for almost every band concert for 5 years I somehow missed it when putting “Say It” up on YouTube…go figure.
