Thread Name: Rick Fielding's influence
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's influence
... well, I guess I learned this from Rick... when you have a choice whether to look at shit or listen to (or make) good music-- go with the music.... when you have a choice whether to sit around all sunk inside yourself, and feel bad, or to jump out and do what you you know you are made to do-- get moving and do it. Not only is life itself short-- so is each and every moment IN it, and you can only really use each moment one way, so you must choose.

Each year as Lent comes around, someone's need seems to move into my heart somehow for that season. I never know who it is going to be; I just accept it as a sacred use of my spirit.

So... I've let a lot of less important things slide this last month. But I am archiving every song I've ever saved, and as the CDs pile up like good fruit stowed down cellar, each one is a thought and a prayer for Rick and Heather.
