A Good Day Off

A really good day off.......we went over to our friend Joe Greg's house around 10:00 this morning.  He's been down in the dumps the past week or so......he's a guitar player and singer/songwriter.......about a week ago, he was doing a handy-man project at home, and had a close encounter with a saw.  We are all holding our breath, hoping that he will again play the guitar in the coming months.  This morning, we wrote.

We wrote two new songs this quite poignant, called Family.  The other one,
( I cant believe I had a hand in this) called Gone Fishing.  It was just the thing to lift his spirits.  We had a great time, and the songs are really good.

I needed this day also.......still not feeling so has been a wee bit know how life goes sometimes.  There is nothing like creative juices flowing like a river to make you feel better.  Birthing a song has to be akin to birthing a child.......not the actual pain, well sometimes that kind of pain is the root for a song.  But there is an intimacy that is shared with your writing partners, a camaraderie that no one else will understand until they too have shared their thoughts so openly.

So, two new songs, seeing a friend who was down, was a good day.


  1. I'm glad it was a good day for you... I hope your friend will be okay...

  2. You're a good friend to go and cheer him up. I just saw on Rick's blog that you get to keep that cute dog..that's a spirit lifter too! Hope your friend gets better and you do too. Take care Jilda!
