A Link and a Tune

I realize that the readers of this blog might get sick of my incessant puppy talk as of late.  And so, I decided to start a blog strictly dedicated to the whole puppy search, find, and then life and times.  If you want, and really there's no pressure here, jump over to my new blog called Puppy Tracks

So now onto other stuff, because a world outside of all things puppies does exist.

I performed in my favorite CD store in all of Dallas a couple of weekends ago (CD Source).  My friend, Elaine, was nice enough to record a few tunes with the flip camera, so I'll go ahead and post one here.

This song, "You'll Be Surprised" is on my CD "50 Different Ways".  I wrote it just after hearing the news that Michael Jackson had died, back in the summer of 2009.  I was stunned, and sad, like the rest of the world.  I also felt disappointed in myself that I had sort of written him off as being a weirdo.  He got so much bad press for a while, that it tainted my view, and for a bit, I forgot what a talented man with a loving heart he was.

Dig a little deeper, clear a whole new path
Come up with different question that you've never asked
Look beyond the madness 'cause there's a method to it all
Pay out your attention to the big things and the small

But don't push anything away
And don't put it off for another day
Because you'll be surprised by what you might find
By not casting anything aside...
Oh, you'll be surprised by what you will find

I jumped to my conclusions before gathering the facts
I passed off unfair judgements, now it's too late to take it back
It's only now I see the picture with all it's shades of gray
It's so much more than black and white but now he's gone away

But don't push anything away
And don't put it off for another day
Because you'll be surprised by what you might find
By not casting anything aside...
Oh, you'll be surprised by what you will find

I never get tired of puppy talk.

He got a lot of grief, 'tis true, but he always seemed so full of love for the earth and for humanity. :)
