You can do it!


Brian Golden

Somehow, someway … I will find the energy to make it through this weekend, I just know it. And it’s not like I’m complaining – any chance to play the guitar and I’m on it – particularly with tonight’s Dinosaur BBQ gig, Saturday afternoon’s Coleman’s gig (the bar’s “Winter Warmer,” should be a great time), a potential gig in Ithaca Saturday evening (if the whole thing didn’t fall through, no word yet), and Sunday’s Songs for Casey memorial all on the horizon. Granted, there’s a good chance my voice will be completely shot by the time it’s all said and done, but that’s the price you pay for all this fame and fortune.

Except I’m not famous … nor have I amassed a fortune of any kind … hmm … something to consider.

Sunday’s performance will be a bittersweet one, obviously, in memory of a good friend, Casey Decker. We lost Casey in a car accident just two days after Christmas, and all of us who knew and loved her are still trying to make sense of it all. My heart goes out to the entire Decker family, who are also good friends, and if you happen to see Kobie, Scottie or Bill out and about, it never hurts to let them know your prayers and thoughts remain with them through this unbearable time. We’re all here for you, and I can’t wait to see you all on Sunday.

And now, another edition of “Most Ridiculous ‘30 Seconds’ Post of the Day,” brought to us by Woman from Norwich …
“30 second picnic in the park? Please, NO! That much stupidity all in one place could cause a change in the earth’s magnetic field, tilting it off it’s axis and causing the end of the world as we know it.”

Woman from Norwich, just so you know, I did not find your post to be ridiculous at all, I simply had to post it as it made me laugh. And I needed a good laugh. With that, adios, my friends. I will see you all on the other side of the weekend, albeit with no voice and a sore hand from all that guitar playing.
