"The pioneers get all the arrows"
My first calling was as a musician and songwriter...I was fortunate enough to have a good run...here's some songs that were not commercially recorded, but I still like them...Hope you do as well...
Friend of mine once told me this lyric should be stitched on a pillow:
I believe that life is for living and love is the axis on which we turn
We bare our souls till all is forgiven
and clothe ourselves with the lessons learned
A favorite quote from a favorite author:
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
and one I saw on a studio wall in Nashville:
“Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig.”
― Robert Heinlein, Time Enough for Love
“A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.”
― Robert A. Heinlein, Friday
