Yep, he’s here, and so is his cousin, E. Klectic. What have they been doing? Tripping out on YouTube. It started when I was looking at patriotic music to celebrate the impending weekend. I did relive lots of 4th of July memories. I don’t know why, but the 4th has a lot of memories for me. My only brother was born on the 2nd of July, back in 1964. I was in 7th grade and really liked the idea of a brother.(I still do!) The next event was buying my home, 24 years ago, today. Time really does fly, doesn’t it? After a lot of 4oj music, I was just fascinated by this…..
As I ruminate the many 4th celebrations, I think of those no longer with us. Waylon was my friend for many years and opened doors to experiences that I will never forget. This is one of his best…
Time has a way of softening the blow of harsh reality, doesn’t it? Thank goodness for that. In my remembrances is the wedding of 1995.(on July 4th). And yes, I was one of the participants. What was to last a lifetime ended in only three months. I have decided that there are two kinds of romantic love. There is the lasting kind and there is the hurting kind. I seem to gravitate to the second kind of love. We had a really cool wedding, though. Here is one of the songs the band played….
In my 1/4 century of living here, the district has always sponsored a fireworks show. If you live in Texas, no fireworks this year. I found a friend’s video that sums up my feelings on the draught situation, the water district, and most of my residual feelings from my 90 day wedding. Caution: contains liberal use of the S-word!
I hope your sense of humor kicked in for the last offering. Do you know Ray Wiley Hubbard? click. He is considered one of the elder statesman of the Texas music scene. I will include one more group of famous Texans. I really like this song. It kind of reminds me of fireworks…
I have many more 4th of July memories that I will spare you from, today. I do sense a new wind blowing this fourth of July. I feel a mighty change in the air. My dream is actually unfolding, right before my very eyes. I am letting go. Yes, I'm letting go of the past, so that my hands will be free to grab a hold of my future. And like The Book says, no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. I really do believe that. I know and believe that the pain and struggles I am feeling, are nothing more than just birth pangs. It won't be long now before my dream bursts forth into my life of RV freedom. Am I up to the challenge? You better believe it, because I do.
Did you figure out my two guests that mentioned at the first of this post? How about..... Esoteric and Eclectic. Thank you so much for taking the time to read what I sometimes call dribbling drool. I hope your holiday is blessed with good friends, good music, good food, and a whole boat load of good vibes. Thank you, my friends!
