I took this picture yesterday in Montrose, CO on the way here to Ridgway which I misppelled in my post yesterday.
Today has been productive. I have two pieces submitted for publication and, if the internet holds out, I will publish at least one more here tonight when this post goes active. Aaron will probably get credit for it. Figures...since it is his band and all. I am the eternal offensive lineman.
I am on a regimented diet of exercises for the mind, spirit, and body. I read. I walk. I write. I watch. I listen constantly. I photograph. I dream. I play. I believe, I eat, I drink.
Is it Blake Shelton who has that song which says something to the effect of, "the more I drink, the more I drink, the more I drink" playing on the idea that drinking will lead to more drinking, etc. I have found this to be the truest thing...when it comes to writing. The more I write, the more I write, the more I write.
If I think back to some of the most literate times of my life, I was working on several things in several genres. Last night I wrote an ATB post and that will go down as the first of hopefully about 15-20 things I plan to accomplish during this trip.
One of those things is to get an up-to-date gauge on how my songs sound and more unfortunately, how not good at singing or playing the guitar I am despite doing it a lot. I swear I could do this music thing if I could only find someone to play guitar and sing my songs...but then I would be a hack.
