1/17/05 'MUSIC MAN'

IT IS VERY STRANGE HOW WE ALL FIND OUR WAY IN LIFE--MOSTLY JUST STUMBLING ALONG AND IF LUCKY FIND A WAY TO HAVE A FAMILY AND MAKE ENOUGH MONEY FOR COMFORT--

THEY TELL ME OF A MAN--NOW FAMOUS--WHO AS A BOY SEEMED TO LOVE STEAM LOCOMOTIVES OF HIS DAY--AIRPLANES--AND BOATS --IN OTHER WORDS HE LOVED MECHANICS WHICH PROVIDED MOTION--

HE FOUND A WAY TO MAKE A DECENT LIVING USING THESE NATURAL MECHANICAL TALENTS--HIDDEN BENEATH THESE DESIRES WAS A NATURAL LOVE OF MUSIC--THE KIND THAT PLEASED HIS BRAIN--MOSTLY COUNTRY MUSIC AND LATER LATIN MEXICAN MUSIC--

HE QUIT HIS MECHANICAL JOB--STUDIED AT A PROFESSIONAL MUSIC SCHOOL AND WAS A SUCCESS AT THE HAWAIIAN STEEL GUITAR AND HARMONICA--LIFE FOR THIS MAN HAD CHANGED COMPLETELY--HE WAS NOW A HAPPY MAN--NOT A DEPRESSED SAD MAN--THE MUSIC THRILLED HIS SOUL AND THRUST HIM INTO ANOTHER REALM OF REALITY--

HE BECAME FAMOUS--IN BANDS ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY--HIS GREATEST THRILL WAS TO PLAY IN MUSIC GROUPS THAT PLAYED FOR THE COMMON MAN--THE HARD WORKING STRUGGLING FOLKS--THIS BROUGHT HIM INTO SOME HARD DRINKING NITE CLUBS--BUT HIS MUSIC AND THE BAND HE WAS A PART OF WAS SO POPULAR AND WELL THOUGHT OF--NO SERIOUS PROBLEMS EVER AROSE--THE AUDIENCE WANTED MORE OF THE MUSIC AND WOULD NOT LET ANYTHING INTERFERE WITH IT BEING PLAYED FOR THEM--

MUSIC IS KNOWN AS THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE TO BRING JOY AND ENTERTAINMENT TO MANY AROUND THE COUNTRY AND ABROAD-

THIS MUSIC MAN IS HAPPY--THIS MUSIC MAN SEEMS TO BE IN A BETTER WORLD ALL THE TIME HE IS PLAYING THE GUITAR OR HARMONICA--THE AUDIENCE OR CROWD CAN SENSE THIS AND IT CAUSES THEM TO FEEL THE SAME WAY--

THIS MAN IS THANKFUL TO BE ABLE TO BE SO HAPPY BECAUSE OF MUSIC AND SO THRILLED TO SEE IT BRING TO LIFE ENJOYMENT FOR SO MANY OTHERS--

THIS MAN IS SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE FOUND HIS WAY--WE ARE NOT ALL THAT FORTUNATE--BUT SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE THIS MUSIC MAN TO PUSH US ON IN THIS STRUGGLING REALITY--
