  • As a writer and musician (and really as an idea engineer) I have found the need to be ready at all times. To take notes
    To stop and listen...
    To think.

    I was feeling pretty melodramatic. Just got home from a long morning/afternoon of ministry, I was tired but the problem was I can't take naps. I just don't fall asleep in the middle of the day. So instead I think. I sit and think, I create and I write. It's my therapy. My home away from home.

    I'm alone sitting on my bed, guitar in hand. I'm considering the message from Pastor this morning, letting it sink in. He talked about Israel, and the importance of America supporting that tiny nation. I agreed with him.

    Gen 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I
    will curse;

    That's a lot to think about, wrap your head around. It wasn't too far fetched for me. Believing that there must be something out there that exists beyond my ability to understand makes sense... It actually gives me hope. Because If I am in control, or any other tainted person on this earth, then we are all doomed.

    It is while considering things like this that the best inspiration comes. I'm talking about the inspiration to create music. I let me mind wander into that endless field of contemplation, and let me fingers create my mood and fuel my thoughts. Chords and notes that shape and form my thoughts into an atmosphere. That is art.

    Not only that: it catches the attention of others.
