1. Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?
Animals love me. It is simply an observation I made a long time ago.
2. What always gets you down?
Getting out of bed. I don’t mind mornings so much, or going to work. Don’t mind being at work at all. I just hate getting out of bed. And don’t say that is depression, either. Depression is not getting out of bed. I have has been diagnosed as ‘lazy’. It is a clinical term, I swear. I just don’t get any meds out of it.
3. If you had to live yesterday once more (literally yesterday, as in Thursday the 14th), which part might be worth writing a pretty pop song about?
The old timey guy who was very nice, but looked like a professional George Burns impersonator. Another example. If Scooby Doo were to be made into another movie, this guy would play the old guy who would have got away with it if it weren’t for those meddling kids.
4. Where’s the coolest place you’ve been where you could look “down on creation?”
A couple place I call ‘inspiration point’. One is coming down Schnebly Hill road into Sedona from Flagstaff. The view, all of the sudden, affirm life and your living of it. The other one is taking the I-70 West out of Denver into the mountains. There is a spot near Evergreen where the highway climbs and then drops down. Just at the top of that is the most insane and perfect view of the Rockies right smack in front of you.
Also, to clarify… the last one has a Dead reference. The wife and I were listening to a Dead show. Terrapin Station was on and just as we got to the pivotal peak of the song, where Jerry hits ‘inspiration’… we crossed that hill. So, it is a personal moment the wife and I enjoy especially.
5. What’s something in your life that has only just begun?
Everything. Being me. Being me is awesome. However, it is a full time job. I am getting better at almost everything as I go along. I am a better musician, friend, handyman, husband, and driver than I was yesterday. Each day is practice on those things. Look out, 40, you will be my bitch!
