“What are you going to do if this music thing doesn’t work out?”


“You know, ‘plan B.’ You do have a backup plan, don’t you?”

Friend, this is the backup plan. I have forgotten all that crap from high school, college, the Army, and land surveying. I’ve probably forgotten how to flip a burger, even. I have barely retained enough gumption to paint a house, drive a truck, or dig a ditch. I’m trying to forget that, too. Yep, this is the backup plan.

Any more questions?

“Yeah, but…”

There ain’t no “Yeah, buts.” This is it (period). One gig at a time. One song at a time. One friend at a time. “Every day is a new life. Everything is a new sight. Every moment makes a memory.” (Hey, I just quoted my own song lyrics, “Kari Waits”). Well, that’s how it works, as best as I can tell. It takes solid, enthusiastic work, not winning a TV Reality Show. 

“But, you’re 54 years old.”  

You know, if I live as long as Willie, I’ve got 30 more years of this. I’m looking forward to every minute of it. I will plow and plant, sow and hoe. Let the Universe provide the wind, the rain, and the soil.

The only plan I have is Be.


Peace y’all,
