I have had this window open for two days now, and I am genuinely torn on what to write. The fact that I’m even contemplating that title is a good thing, but what that means, I’m not fully sure.
I went a whole year without posting here. A whole year. And at times it hurt me deeply to realize that’s what I was hurtling toward. Around early December, I got the urge to post, but at that point, I figured why not round it up to a year and start from there. It’s not as if I haven’t been writing. There have been articles and reviews with a local website called MileHighGayGuy that have kept me engaged at times, and then there was a brief stint contributing to Popblerd and Friends that was a blast.
So I sit here staring at the screen, debating if I even go on when a tweet comes through. Mary Chapin Carpenter’s new album Scenes from the Movie is now streaming on Amazon, and it is stellar. I have to write about this.
It’s a song that you danced to in high school
It’s a moon you tried to bring down
On a four-in-the-morning drive through the streets of town
Yes, there will be album reviews. Yes, there will be rants and reflections on musically related topics. And hopefully, those of you who visit this blog will feel moved to jump in and leave thoughts and rebuttals that will spur conversation. If there is one thing I love as much as music, it is talking about music. If you will indulge me that little request, I would be a happy and fortunate man. “Come on, come on…”
