Man enough to wear pink?


Do you dare take a stand and say "hey, it's just a bloody color - it doesn't define who i am, how i feel or hold any clues about my sexuality."?

Huh? Stop flexing those triceps and tell me.

Stop stroking that little goatee and answer me.

Can you step into a store, and say as loudly as you can "great shirt - do you have it in PINK?"

come on, look inside. You're a man - you can find the courage.

Don't be afraid. Just Do it.

And when you do, send me a picture.

i haven't got anything in that shade.

This, I find, is the hardest part about my journey: everybody leaves.

Someday, I

Thanks to a good friend, I read book yesterday. Tuesdays with Morrie.
among all the other things, it opened my eyes to how precious every single day of our life is.

And how important the people we surround ourselves with are.

So in the end, i did something that I've been fighting for along time. I picked up my guitar.
and i dug up the last song that i wrote.

A song called "Someday I". A song about how you can keep postponing your dreams or goals until it might be too late to pursue them.

I looked at the date i wrote it, and it hit me hard: July 2006. Yesterday was July 2008.

I had sulked about my music not going anywhere significant for two years thinking it was no more than a few months.

And the irony was i had written the lyrics, but somehow it seems like i didn't read the lyrics enough to believe it.

i never got into music for the fame or money or the girls. I always said id play for 5 or 500 with the same energy. And i did - for 10 years. Despite a good number of people telling me they loved my work - and that i should never stop - i did.

I guess i just lost my way. I also lost a big piece of Myself.

i think what im trying say is, I'm ready to start writing songs again.

My "someday I" was yesterday.
