Hi There!

Last week in Los Angeles I participated in a live Q&A as part of an ASCAP expo on songwriting. When the topic of Twitter came up, I explained my waning interest in it being part of my daily life. By no means do I think it’s over as a medium altogether, but I do think that the days of “Twitter: The Breakthrough” have passed, as has been and will continue to be the case for every online social network. It’s reached it’s cruising altitude, so to speak. Patterns and templates are emerging. The Twitter-bred syntax isn’t really doing it for me anymore.

And call me crazy, but I don’t think it’s the healthiest thing in the world to read scads of mentions/@replies and effectively open the floodgate of other people’s approval/disapproval. Finding out in 140 characters what a stranger has to say about you is like a mathematical equation without an established value of ‘x’. Who are you, stranger? What do you stand for? What do you like, and if it’s not me, then what does move you? What DO you look up to? Once I find that out, I’ll know how disappointed I should be.

This is where Tumblr comes in. It’s the future of social networking if your image of the future features intelligent discourse. I love reading other Tumblr users replies, because they’re thoughtful by virtue of the fact that if they’re not, they’ll bring the intellectual property value of their own blog down, and that’s a commodity on Tumblr.

This post is an experiment in itself. If you want to communicate with me, open a Tumblr account, follow me, repost my blog and then add to it. I’ll follow you back. Agree or disagree, lionize or demonize, but for God’s sake, be original. You’ll have all the room in the world to do it now.

I keep in touch with my family and friends through Facebook but always wanted to write a blog. I would probably talk about my everyday things at work (I’m a veterinarian) and trust me they would be either funny, crazy, nasty, happy or sad events. None the less interesting! Who knows if I continue my BLOG!! I’ll let u know. 

You know it’s nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then the circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining”

"Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won’t all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good.”

I’ve always followed your music since the first day I heard you sing in 2001 while I was living in Alabama.  On June 22, 2008 I lost my brother and this song help me pull trough all my pain and tears. Even though I miss him every day, I know that every word in that song is true. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
