So the Storytellers is happening again tomorrow night. I wish I could go, but I’ll be working instead. I lot of people that I have had the pleasure of meeting are being asked to participate over the coming months. The Gadsden Vineyard crew is a plethera of artistic talent in almost every aspect. Photography, music, art, dance, and more…and that is just my sis-in-law.
So I was asked about a month ago (I think) and I have not really had time to play let alone write. And actually I have been in a writing dryspell for a long time (uhm…about 4 years or so). What makes this worse is that all of the songs I have written were locked up in a storage unit that we put our stuff in and we lost the unit when the money folded a while back. ALL 40+ SONGS ARE GONE!!! So now, all I have is what I have written since then or had in a different place than the others. To date, I have two songs that are originals. EEEEK!!! The Storytellers are asking us to bring 5+ songs. That means I have some creativity to churn out here, people.
I think I’ll make it okay. At lunch today I wrote down a song-story about a guy on campus. He is a great guy, but no one really knows he that is here let alone what he does on campus.
Well, I hope everyone’s creativity gets boosted the next few weeks.
Write, create, perform, revise, recreate, perform…
JUST DO IT!!!
oh wait, that’s Nike.

Thankfully no one has asked Zach to do storytellers. I think because all his songs are usually made up on the spot. Like the one about Elsie not getting to go outside. Or his old dog, Pepsi, pooping in the yard. And the many songs about bread (the boy likes bread). None of these have been written down, so he\’d have nothing to sing. But if they ever want a night of random song-styling based on what\’s happening, Zach\’s your man! :o)
Dude..Rest assured the ol\’ creative juices will start flowing as the day draws near for you to participate in storytellers. It\’s is amazing….I haven\’t written anything in 2 years and over the past 3 weeks, I\’ve written three new songs and completed 2 old ones that were unfinished.God is good…String em\’ up strum along…mb
