Thankfulness. For the close and loyal friends and the music we share.
حالا بماند که #باغلاما دنیای خودش را دارد، اما این شعر از آن دسته دیوانگیهاست که داستانهای بلند زندگی را در چند جمله خلاصه میکند.
گوکهان و موصطافا ایپکچیاوغلو، و اجرای اثر (Benim divane gönlüm) آشیک کول یوسوف. KulYusu #
Şu benim divane gönlüm
Yine hubdan huba düştü
Mah cemalin şulesinden
Dalgalandı göle düştü
Kiminin meskeni külhan
Kimi derviş kimi sultan
Kimi yari ile mihman
Bu ayrılık bana düştü
Kimi aşka vermiş değer
Kimisi boynunu eğer
Kimi atlas libas giyer
Şükür bize aba düştü
Kul Yusuf'undur bu demler
Didemden akıttım nemler
Benim çektiğim sitemler
Dosttan bize caba düştü

So I just wanted to start 2019 like this.
I've been doing a lot of thinking:
YOU DO MATTER.
Imagine a table filled with wine glasses, water goblets, kegs, shot glasses, etc. Logically, a shot glass can only hold what a shot glass can hold, a keg can only hold what a keg can hold and all in between. PEOPLE are exactly like this. Every. One. Of. Us. We can only hold so much in our lives and our mental health.
True empathy lies in the realm of acknowledging and VALIDATING the different sizes and to WORK TOGETHER to move us up to the next glass size up. However, this is a sliding scale, a person can live as a keg their whole life and then become a shot glass overnight. However, they can increase capacity again.
When water is overflowing out of these glasses, sometimes evaporation and TIME is all that's needed, or get away from the area for a while; I like to call "dumping the glass". I struggle with insecurities and fears everyday with a lot that's been going on and internal things. I know we all do. Even those we deem as "perfect". We MUST be comfortable with being uncomfortable. That's how we can progress together. Being vulnerable. This does not mean to wear our struggles as a crutch or a badge, but to EMPOWER ourselves and others.
We are not HUMANS with SPIRITUAL experiences, we are SPIRITS with HUMAN experiences. Period. (shout out to TonyaTKO). <3 You are loved.
Background music is not mine. I dont own it, i just played with it. Its from a mediation video on youtube.

Earlier this week Langhorne Slim celebrated 2019 at Nashville’s City Winery with his 5th Annual New Year’s Day Extravaganza. Among the talented friends joining the songwriter for the party included rising star Erin Rae and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit guitarist Sadler Vaden.

FBF. Circa 1969, when I was a young starving musician. Deep Left on far right side. I was called “Lefty” in those days. #dodgers #baseball #mlb #folkmusic
It’s been ten years that I’ve owned this cracked up, burnt, water-logged, snow-logged, old thing. Looking at my guitars, and not being able to play them, has had me thinking quite a bit about my instruments and the stories behind each. Today, I decided to throw a sponge in this one to temporarily close up some cracks before I restrung it. During this, I caught myself reminiscing about the time I ran over this guitar with my car. I was so upset, I didn’t drive for a week. Three months later my dad brought it back from the luthier (Bob Macblane) for my graduation present. That was the first time I cried in front of all of my friends at once. I found much joy today learning that it still sounds great, plays like ass and has a truss rod that moves like a square bicycle tire. Music has always made sense to me when people, politics and relationships didn’t. Although I can’t play it for a while because of my hand, I’m thankful that I decided long ago to keep this one for the long haul. It reminds me why I do what I do every time I bring it back to life. Music has given me a lot and I can’t wait to continue to use instruments like this one to give a little bit back. Feel free to share an instrument story below if you have one. I’d love to hear it.

Swipe left for record clip! The Leake County Revelers were one of the most successful string bands of the late 1920’s. “Monkey in the Dog Cart” was recorded in Atlanta in October 1927. The band recorded 6 to 10 songs for Columbia every spring and fall for the next several years.
MONDAY: I'm doing a VERY special last minute preview gig at @acoustheque at The Alehouse in Stratford on Avon.
TODAY: I went to @cecilsharphouse for the first time to experience their extensive library of books and it was intimidating, glorious and eye-opening.
I've picked out a select few songs that I hope to arrange that were collected from places very close to me. ...
Keep on keeping your eyes peeled and thanks for your patience!

A scary big move, but I am excited to see where it goes!
We are just putting the finishing mix on our debut single to be released in March... so follow along with us so you don't miss out! ➡️@driftwoodpeople 🔥See you at The Seahorse Tavern January 18th🔥
