The list is too long to even contemplate... Oldies Top 40...60's, 70's, 80's, 90's soft rock/easy listening. Pop music from all four of those decades (and the 50's too, actually).
Country music...God's own gift, I swear!
"The Greatest Miracle in the World" by Og Mandino
"Clear Thoughts...Coming Out of the Fog"
by Tommy Dee Walker
(and you thought you KNEW me, eh?)
"The Earthling" (1985) William Holden in one of his last movies, with a very young Ricky Schroeder
in Australia... The movie touched my heart... Oh...and my "Wow...I need faith like THAT" movie..
"The Seventh Sign" starring Demi Moore (also around 1985 or '86...)
I'm simply an addict. That says it all.. what did I use? Whatever it took to get me here. How long did I use? Long enough to hit bottom. Where did I use? Everywhere I could.
I'm a singer/songwriter who could have "made it"
but...addiction got in my way. Today, many people
love the music I play...some don't. And that's just fine. I live well, and love well...and am loved in return...How could I ask for more? The gift came when I surrendered... (see "Like")
I deeply dislike people who are mean-spirited, who
would hurt someone else just to make themselves feel "bigger" or "better".
People who judge first...and ask later also vex me. Simply because a guy hugs a girl young in recovery time does NOT mean he wants to bed her. He might just want to give her a hug. (Keep YOUR motives to yourself! You DON'T know anyone else's.)
Other than that...I love people...and life... and yes...I love LOVE...(that would be GOD, by the way)
