Diamond Dust & Broken Bottles
It's past time for a new record and I know it. Over time you stack up some tears and fears and heartache. I've made that record, though. Several times. My pal, Walt, tells me that I should be writing happy songs, love songs. He's right. I look around at all of the wonderful folks who come through my life and I'm overwhelmed with gratitude. I have known love and kindness and passion. I surely regret any sorrow or hurt that I may have caused in this world and I know that working for peace and truth and love is the best that I can ever do to make up for any of it. I don't want to break any hearts with music. I want to pump 'em full of joy and hope and wonder. The Beatles did. Little Richard did. Let's celebrate life and love. We've got that.
