"Throwing the Switch"

I know, I know, I know...my guitar has a horrible ground:) Hope y'all can tough it out and possibly enjoy:) For more of the story behind this series of hiccups and speed bumps that morphs into a song, check out the blog www.whisperingdream.com

  So, I've got a ton of random points that stuck out to me after I made this video which will make this more of a rant of sorts rather than a blog...but, for the sake of blogs, we'll call it a blog:

  • So I learned that there is something horribly undoing about the glowing red circle on any recording device. This was a typical Saturday morning, clothes washing in the next room, 2 cups of coffee down, working on the 3rd, Instagram's all checked, world news shows me that things are still...well we're still here, and I pick up my Lady (a.k.a my guitar), and in 1 take I NAILED this new tune that I've been picking on!! Musically, Vocally, Lyrically...EVERYTHING was in sync!!! Then I touched the GODDAMN red button!! HAHAHA!! And now you have this bumpy ride through the writing/playing of music.
  • The mind is SOOOO interesting to me! How; in the course of a couple minutes you can move through the lush green fields of focus (Toss in a splash of variable/distraction) to the barren tundra of fear/panic. I chuckled when I first watched this, because I was able to see my mind working through the speed bumps, and settling back into place (for the most part:) 
  • There's an odd nervous twinge that grabs me whenever I'm attempting anything involving even the slightest bit of pressure; but, MAN it feels good to move through it!! The art of laughing at oneself is invaluable!! Take, for instance, my one and only unblemished V-Neck white T-Shirt (making it automatically my favorite); totally a belly shirt!! HAHAHAHA!!! And now I know, and new shirts are on the way:)
  • I wonder why the humming (bad ground) subsided when it did? Was my mind in full focus? Had I worked through enough distraction? Did the words work some magical spell over my electronics? Or maybe it was just random...
  • This is a new song, and it's essentially a description of an evening. I'm fresh off of work, everything in me is exhausted, and all I want to do, is sit back in my Crazy Creek, and watch the day end...

  I don't have the best record of handling stress in the healthiest of ways, just ask the guys I work with:) It's a haunting flaw, hahaha. But, due to happenstance, the normal levels of stress have BLOWN through my over-sensitive atmosphere!!! HAHAHAHA!! I'm learning new things about myself each day...and they're not always pretty...

  However, there are those epic moments in life (they come preferably at the top of a mountain, where your senses are doing their best to simply struggle taking everything in, or in the time lapse of a solitary glance from your love) where the perfection and beauty of the moment can in NO way be transferred into a picture or something technological. Even though you give chase as if you could ever touch...some moments are SO PURE, that they're sole purpose is the experience of the moment...That was the moment I experienced, just hanging out on my tailgate, watching the day fade, wondering when all of this sudden pressure would subside...I think the key is in letting go (because, realistically, how much control do I REALLY have), flowing, breathing, and LOTS of laughing at myself:) 

Let me know whatcha think:)
