Have you ever listened to acoustic sunrise?? I have to say this was my favorite thing to do on a Sunday morning, brew some coffee and curl up listening to acoustic sunrise and greet the morning with a soft kiss and a steady long hug. Yup I miss that. Last night I was given the opportunity to listen to a fantastic acoustic sunrise, live. It’s funny how memories can be touched off by something so subtle. How could a man singing and playing on the deck set off a slide show in my mind. It was a beautiful evening but also a very sad evening. It was like someone handed him a play list of every song that had some type of memory attached to it. Black bird singing in the dead of night, yup, that pulled some tears emotionally. How about the Jack Johnson that I use to clean the house too, yup that was a killer!!!
Strange thing, I sat listening to him play, I watched the looks on his face and it was like he was feeling every song he sung. I have to say this man has written a lot of songs him self and very single one I would say ” Thats the sound track to my life.” He would stop playing and look at me, with those peacring blue eyes and say, “Ahhey, that is the sound track to my life as well, that’s why I sing it so.” I guess there are two types of personalities in life, the deep and the shallow. I feel like I have been wading in the shallow end for 2 years now. When I looked down I could see my own feet shallow. Maybe I need to move to the deep end? Can a person REALLY be that shallow?? One minute saying I want to spend my life with you and the next day say he changed his mind? In the shallow end this is possible I guess because there is no current or fighting the swirls of water to make such a sharp turn. In the deep end it takes a lot more effort to make such a harsh decision. You have to displace a lot of water to bang a u turn. I guess all the times I was thinking I am in the shallow end I really was.
This is a lesson I learned the hard way I guess. Make sure when you set your vessel off on a journey you choose a sea that is deep enough for your draft. You do not want to run a ground and find yourself stranded in the shallow end when you really want to be sailing the world and seeing and experiencing things. Do not choose a captain that will run your vessel a ground and walk away merrily to sail and see the world with out you, that’s not a good captain. The captain should always say with the vessel and try their hardest to navigate you back where you belong. I guess captains who abandon their vessels in hard time and skip away were really not ment to sail the deep seas, rather stay in the shallow end………………………………………….
