It's a quarter to 4:00 a.m. and I'm sitting in my favorite chair watching an old movie. For some reason, I just don't want to go to sleep...So I'm writing a new post for my blog. I really don't know why. No one EVER reads my stuff, but I keep writing and I keep putting it on Facebook and on here...but, for some reason, it just seems I'm the only one who ever reads it. Maybe other folks do read it...I just don't ever hear about it.
Anyway, this has been a tough few weeks...more so for some than others. We've just finished the third week of "social distancing" and the basic shut down of normal daily functions of the world. I've been blessed to spend every day with my wife. Since she's my best friend, and I wouldn't want to be with anyone else, this is a big plus for me. We have made a daily routine of our own and we have accomplished a lot of different tasks around the house. I admit it...I'm feeling guilty about all the pain and horror people are facing, but I'm really enjoying being with my honey every day. Sorry...but I am.
Whoops...Don't know if you could tell, but I took a break for about 12 hours. I'm back now and I guess I will finish this little blog. During the last few hours, I needed something therapeutic to pass the time, so I made a video for the museum. I want to do SOMETHING to honor the brave souls that are fighting this horrible cursed disease...so, I made this little music video.
Just a little background info on why I chose this song. Bill Withers, the incredibly talented singer & songwriter to whom this tune belongs, died a few days ago from this nasty little bug. Not only was he a Grammy Award winner, but he was also a 9 year veteran of the U.S. Navy. When I was a kid, his music meant a lot to me. What's so incredible, his music has become more and more relevant as I've gotten older. I can only hope that the younger generations can embrace and appreciate his form of uplifting and inspirational art.
So, my video is meant to honor those fighting on the front lines of the disease war, and honor one of our nation's super talented veterans. Hope you enjoy...IF you see this at all.
PEACE & LOVE
