Concepts To Ponder

There are a few different concepts I have been pondering, as of late. 
This first concept is the idea that there is a season for everything.  The specific passage I am referring to is found in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. American Standard Version (ASV):  

3 “For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”

Thrice “The Dark”



    One of my favorite bands, Thrice, just released their new      album, “Palms.”  After listening to the whole record from beginning to finish, I found my favorite song, “The Dark.”  I always hope that there will be at least one that sticks out to me.  Well, this is that one.  As a musician and songwriter, my ears are in tune for all the different layers of sound and production in each song.  However, when you find that song, it’s like all your intellect and thought processes get silenced as your awareness becomes taken away into something bigger than itself.  It’s almost like you get ‘caught up,’ you’re taken somewhere else, and lost in the music.  To me, that is the end goal when you write music:  to help others be inspired, experience rapturous moments of peaceful serenity, and escape into Utopia.

Unworthy by Vancouver Sleep Clinic

Sometimes you come across a song and you can’t explain it but it moves your soul in such a beautiful way.  As a singer and songwriter, I live for these moments.  And the beauty of these moments is once they are captured, you can relive them over and over.  Unworthy by Vancouver Sleep Clinic is one of these.

How To Be (Poem by Rebekah Dove)

Embracing the unknown

This path laced with thorns

Leaving but bloody traces behind

Withholding not my love

Forging the way ahead

While darkness floods my view

Barely whispers of prayers echo in the silence

Salty tears rain soft down each cheek

Never ceasing this heartache underneath

Casting off regrets and haunting memories

Letting go of what could be

Hoping yet in the wake of this storm

Despite the war raging inside me

Doubt battles relentlessly

Forlorn dreams dashed without rhyme or reason

Yet still do I press on
