Time to drop the rhyme for a special #MystiqueUnPlugged Well it seems I owe a couple of #Music plays of the day for my followers. Yes, my followers, thank you for following this crazy writer turned poet who loves music.
My followers, social media, growing. It is hard to keep up. I follow thousands now. But the numbers don't matter. I can still remember my first follower. There was @todd . Ello tradition. Cool, the guy who runs ello is a mountain bike riding fly fisherman who is a professional designer. Comes with the profile.
Then there was @keatsk . The first person who actually followed me. @melissadawn , the first person that I met on line that evolved into a real life meeting. The folks I see elsewhere on social media like @junwin @tehranchik @194angellstreet @aarons_house @jokersatx @markgelband @andreali . Those are the things that matter. The connections. The sensation of shared inspiration.
So as I evolve, a shout out. Sharing a special song.
We all have songs that whenever we hear them tug on our heartstrings. They transcend the music. Take us to a time, a place, an experience. Who were we with? Stoned younger years at the end of the night, staring at the garage door over the hood of our car, waiting for the songs blasting connection to close. What song was it. for you?
For me Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" is one of those songs. It came into my life when I had a chance to ditch college for a job that paid more than most of my grad friends were making. Working downtown. The foxes and the party life getting in the way when heading home. Able to do the job, but my youth showed, I wasn't ready to move partying down my list of priorities.
Decisions are right or wrong at the time you make them. There was a time I told myself I was a fool and should of focused on making the money. Now I've learned, there's more important things in life than money. Like learning and building mutually beneficial relationships. Was it good for you too baby? You focus on that, the money will take care of itself.What are those things for you?
A big thank you to my followers. The music I share, is all part of my process. I have a lot of projects going on right now, who will journey with me.... ?
So, what does all this have to do with #Writing & #Art ?
People ask me where I get my ideas from. Allow me to share with you about Fleetwood Mac 's writing of the Chain. It stands as an anchor to me. Connected to the story, my life, the inspirations that surround me. you want to be a great artist, writer, tell a great story. Look around us, it's everywhere ....
