Someone old, something new … dusting off the music in my life

I took a trip back in time yesterday.

I had the nerve to walk into Radio Shack and ask to buy a cassette tape player. Yeah, it made me feel old (and I eventually bought it at Walmart because it was half the price) but I am so glad I bought it.

Not only can I now get all my old original songs onto the computer (using today’s technology), but now I can get down song ideas on a recording device that will not make any demands on my song:

  • I don’t have to arrange it.
  • I don’t have to publish it.
  • I don’t have to share it with the world.
  • I don’t have to be perfect.
  • It keeps it as music for me and doesn’t turn it into work.

I have had writer’s block for fourteen years; it set in after I put out my first CD, “Teach Me to Love.” Here’s hoping old technology (an old friend that helped me write over 300 songs over my life) can be a freeing thing.

“Welcome back my friend to the show that never ends!”
