RHYTHM ROCKERS BENEFIT FOR BOB BRITT

We love Bob, it was a fantastic night of music. The Nashville music community is a strong, supportive and loving set of friends.
Best gig in town by far and for a good cause. Bob played a few songs. It rocked!


PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN YOUR HEART
There was so much talent in that room last night, but above all LOVE.
The money helps of course, we all need it, but we also need love. Bob and Etta got a boost of LOVE last night and there is more to come.

PERSPECTIVE
Perspective is another way of seeing things. Sometimes the way forward seems pointless, some never go there, some just stop.

We must always press on no matter how we feel. Being an artist can lead to taking on others emotions, channeling the unknown,
feeling it is all about self and then we discover that the pain is not ours, but theirs.

Percy Warner - Nashville, 4.07 pm

 

When the STORMS OF LIFE come thundering, look to the stars for the truth, the sun will shine upon a new day.
If you know someone with depression, listen, listen, listen. A simple word may save a precious life.

JOHNNY CASH was born on this day in 1932
I drove out to Hendersonville (Tennessee) on a beautiful sunny day to get my cameras cleaned and some repaired.
As I had to wait a few minutes I took a drive on Johnny Cash Parkway and saw people standing by Johnny and June's graves.
I had another Nikon and my iPhone. The light was magical. The flowers and messages heartwarming. I snapped a few pictures and returned to Forest Camera Repair.
I showed Wendy a few pictures and she said that Johnny had brought a camera in for repair once with his assistant, Hugh Waddell.
Then I remembered having recommended her. Wendy said that Johnny was really nice and talked cameras (she has a display of old cameras).
I said it would have been his 84th birthday today. Wendy said it was her birthday today too. How serendipitous.
Some days are magical.

NASHVILLE SNOW STORM

A few days of hard winter is all we get in Nashville. Today was fabulous.
I walked for hours with cameras. I saw many smiling faces, including dogs and squirrels. Some maintenance men scraped, plowed and swept.
Snow men and women were built, even saw a snow child. Snow balls were thrown. Birds found food, humans played on sliding things.
I was radiantly happy walking in our winter wonderland.
After several hours one of my cameras (Fuji) froze, my feet were soaked and numbed and my hat and jacket were covered in snow.

The Nikon, iPhone and me kept going till dark. Outside my home neighbours were making a snowman as the snow laden bushes appeared as if they bowed to us.
The day was magical.
