I picked my place in life in order to be able to listen to the music I want to hear when I want to hear it. 8 to 10 hours a day, on the average I listen. That`s how important music is to me. My kids have become totally engulfed in music as well. My wife, however, can take music or leave it......it`s not part of her life`s blood, like for the kids and I. It must be frustrating to her sometimes to hear 3 different audio systems going, from 3 different rooms at the same time; with each of us upping the volume to decrease the bleed from the others`. It has turned my 18 year old into an awesome musician though. She does, however attend most concerts with me, and enjoys 90% of them.

We`ve all heard the saying "You Can`t Take It With You When You Go" our whole lives, however I strongly disagree on one aspect. I truely believe that all the music I`ve absorbed over my lifetime will travel with me to the great beyond; just like it swims through my head while sleeping, or when walking by myself in the deep forest. It will give me great comfort when all else is gone.

That`s the culmination of my insight and/or projection for today.

Got 19 CDs in the mail the last two days, and I haven`t finished them yet, so time to shut down the computer and start up the sterio(surround sound is for NASCAR) !

Keep On Keepin` On...........R.K.

Great sentiment. If nothing else, the joy derived from music will help prepare your soul for the journey to the next dimension. I believe there will be music playing during that journey to prepare us for the divine encounter.

Thank You everyone who gave me a posative responce to my post. I feel like I`ve been adopted into the family now ! I`m off again tonight to see another live show. Gonna see Cedric Burnside and Lightnin` Malcom. Cedric is the grandson of the late R.L. Burnside, and their music has that Mississippi Hill Country style. One of the other members.....JayinPa....clued me in on the show. Hope to see you there Jay.

The only thing that comes close to feelings I get from listening to my music, is my family, and the feeling I get when I turn somebody on to music they were previously unfamiliar to.

Later..........R.K.

Very cool - so glad I'm not the only one who dreams music. It actually wakes me up sometimes. Thought maybe I was just crazy.

I also thought I was the only one to Dream music. You are the first person(EVER) to let me know they also have this happen. Happened this mornin` as a matter of fact. Was out `til after 2:00 listening to Cedric Burnside and Lightnin` Malcom play then partying with them. Got home, put the pictures on the computer and listened to some of the two autographed CDs, and went to bed at 4:00 A.M. At 6:55 was awoken to Blues Music goin` `round in my head. Feet hit the floor, and downstars I went to plug the CDs back in the computer(wifey`d a killed me if I`d cranked up the sterio!) and picked right up where my dream left off.

My life is soooo full of music that sometimes I wonder how it could all be "Real". All this talk about BRUCE lately. He`s alright, but never been anywhere near one of my favorites. My son wanted to see him, and I said: " I just wish I could see Nils Lofgren by himself". Well today I find out that Nils has property next to a Brother of a guy who used to paint for me in Arizona. The brother is an an artist, and someone who my other son admires for his work(Said son just received his admittance acceptance to Penn State University yesterday, in art/archetecture, where he also hopes to expand his musical interests). Anyway.....this Arizona artist(Mark McDowell) just sold a piece of art to Nils` wife and she gave it to Bruce`s wife for a birthday present.

Got some extra money to spend(may as well give him a full plug):

Sometimes I think my mind is the universe and all going on is only my own projection.

Was that The Matrix ?..................

Don`t have retirement but lots and lots of music to sell to pay the bills if necessary.
Wasn`t it Fat Freddy who said: Music `ll get you through times of no money, better than money `ll get you through times of no music !?!?
