When Less is More

November 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Oddly enough when you add the word less to a word it can mean more.  Maybe it's the two negatives make a positive rule. Like this: add less to limit and you have limitless.  I love the possibilities of limitless.  When I look up on a clear, dark night, I can feel the lack of limits.  Or when looking at the horizon of the ocean, my limits are less.  Limitless is how many two-year-old children act.  They do whatever fuels their brain.  Jump off a couch?  Sure.  Run full speed.  No reason not to.  But as adults, we put many limits on ourselves.  Some are taught. I hear people ask me my age when I tell them I'm working on recording my music.  Or, gee that's nice, what are you going to do with it?  Huh?! Well, I'm not going to answer that directly.  We will just see how it all evolves.  American Songwriter, the magazine sent me a t-shirt when I subscribed that has printed on it: Don't Let the Music Die In You.  I took it literally.  And have been working my way towards that end for awhile.  

Day 59Day 59Music is my love.

This image of me is by my good friend and professional photographer, Linda Williams taken at the Recovery Shack.  It's a place where much music has been made over the years.  Music is limitless.  Consider the many types, Consider the fact that there are only 7 notes.  No limits - limitless and countless makings of music with only seven notes.  Who would think?  And really that's all it comes down to is thinking.  If you think and follow through, you too can be limitless.  Or mostly so, I have found some limits, not with learning music but in building with wood.  I actually found that I had limits.  You can learn a lot about yourself when you hit a limit.  I learned to walk away and come back with a different plan.  Sometimes the plan is to have someone else do it.  That works too.
