Languid Congnitive Expression

What Happened?

This truncated week might be one of the reasons I feel out of step with the tap dance of time. I did manage to record some tracks with John on Wednesday that may or may not be better than last week. We need good demos of the latest songs.

This renewed interest in song arrangement details is a mixed blessing. Partly because I have already learned to sing and play comfortably using the previous arrangements. Putting a slick new accent or passing tone into the guitar part requires changes in breathing and combining new rhythms into a form I can sing freely with.

Would that the world’s problems were so simple that a few changes would eventually resolve differences into beautiful harmonious compositions.

Perhaps I have stumbled upon an overlooked solution; “Little changes can lead to a pleasant resolution.”

I must send that to our ambassador of peace. Oh, wait... We don’t have one of those.

Maybe that is why we don’t seem to find peaceful solutions. No ambassador of peace. We aren't prepared to pursue that sort of outcome.

The United States is seen by the rest of the world as a spoiled child holding the worlds largest nuclear arsenal. Not a soothing presence to calm conflicted nations.

I suppose it is up to us, people like you and me to be America’s ambassadors of peace. At least until we elect some less ideological and more thoughtful public officials.
