the Eagles from their Hell Freezes Over Tour. Mellow stuff. I Can’t Tell You Why. Acoustic Hotel California. Desperado. Wasted Time. Such memories.
Slow day at the plantation today allowed me to do some cool stuff. Participated in a blogger conference call for presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. That guy is impressive.
He talked about humility and how it doesn’t represent weakness. He is oh so right. I guess I never really thought about how arrogant we as a nation have become. I mean, yeah, I know that it is true but I never really applied it to foreign policy. I wish that more people would listen to him. Just listen and then decide for themselves.
DR brought an acoustic in today, not to play at the plantation; he was planning on playing again for a guy in the hospital. I talked him into showing me a couple of things to improve my playing, he’s so good. Why he is a slave at the plantation, I’ll never know. Yeah, I know, confidence, it affects us all I guess. He is that good. If only he believed in himself.
I think that is true of a lot of people, they are so talented, given gifts by God to use for His purpose, but never stepping out and using them in the name of security and peace of mind. They could do mind boggling things in this world but toil day after day at mundane tasks.
If there was one thing I would change about the world, it would be to give creative people higher respect. Artists, musicians, writers, actors â€“ they bring such joy and stimulation to life.
