When we're young, love seems so volatile. We get crazy over a boy/girl/issue and it takes over our lives. It makes life edgy and a little wild. Or maybe that's just me. Could be. I know everything seemed SO important when I was young. So big and life changing. I was certain I would save the world. As I get older, I realize that this old world has been around a long time and, like the Gulf of Mexico, there are tides that ebb and flow and patterns that evolve. Some things change quickly. In the blink of an eye. But some things change so slowly that we never really appreciate that there is truly change happening. I believe that the real changes in this world come from inside. Inside each of us there is an evolution of thought, of care of real humanity and real love. There is real love in the music of The New 76ers, Nikki Talley, Pierce Pettis, Michael J. R. Roth, Mike Jurgensen, Paul Kamm & Eleanore MacDonald, Rachel Grubb and The Resonant Rogues. I hope you feel it.
Here's to old love too .... Maggie & Mike. Lucky Mud
