Today was a busy day filled with grass cutting. As a blues musician, I have multiple properties to take care of, and keeping the grass trimmed is just one of the tasks on my to-do list. It's a different kind of rhythm that helps me find solace and clears my mind amidst the hustle and bustle of summer life in AL. Hot as a mofo sometimes
Maintaining multiple properties means I have my fair share of grass to trim and maintain. While I often find solace in songwriting, most of the time, it's just me out there, trimming and cutting grass. It's a labor of love that keeps me grounded and connected with the physical world around me. And its exercise .
One of the things that make the time go by better is listening to podcasts while I work. I pop in some earbuds and tune in to different shows, allowing my mind to wander and soak in new information and perspectives. It's amazing how much knowledge and entertainment you can absorb while riding on that lawn mower. Ride and learn time .
Speaking of mowers, my faithful companion on these grass-cutting expeditions is a little John Deere that has been with me for the past 20 years. its my dads old mower. It has served me well over the years, but I know that eventually, I'll need to invest in a new one. However, for now, this mower still gets the job done. I hope to squeeze another year or two out of it before getting an upgrade.
Grass-cutting season is a busy time of year, but I am truly grateful for the opportunity to do this work. It allows me to stay connected with nature and appreciate the simple joys of maintaining a well-kept property. As I navigate through the grass, I can't help but think of my fans and supporters. The thought of them keeps me company while I'm riding that hot ass lawnmower, and I'm grateful for their support.
If you ever find yourself needing to cut grass, remember that you're not alone. We all have our tasks and responsibilities to tend to. And in those moments, find solace in music, podcasts, or whatever brings you joy and helps the time pass by a little smoother. It's a small reminder that even in the midst of everyday chores, there's room for a touch of inspiration and rhythm. Ride Sally Ride
Well, it's time for me to get back to work. The grass won't cut itself, and there's plenty to do. As I hop on that lawnmower and dive into the sea of green, I'll be thinking of you all, my dear diary, and the incredible journey I'm on as a blues musician. Until next time, keep the Blues alive.
