Brandy Day175: Peace From Passion

‘Where words fail, music speaks.’ Hans Christian Anderson.
I love live music. Acoustic is even better. When you have someone that can sing & play as amazingly as this man, no words are needed.
I first met Jason Squier at Michaels, the bar I used to manage. He and his band played every Friday night. It was such a great time. Everyone loved them, loved us, loved Fridays. One thing led to another and I was shooting photos of them and attending every show at other venues when possible. I couldn’t get enough of Jason’s voice and demeanor when he was on stage. So captivating, relaxing & passionate. I’ve never seen someone play the guitar as delicately as him. Watching someone do what they love is so meaningful. You get a sense of peace from their passion.
A great friendship has grown from the night I first met him. He sends me rough recordings of new music as he knows I’ll give him my honest opinion. Thank you for doing what you do and doing it so well. Keep playing. Keep singing.

Brandy Day157: Down The Drain

Lunch shifts at the bar can be pretty hectic. People are in and out quickly on a lunch break. Fast pace, steady business & a lot of it, but its fun and a nice change up.
Today I met Skip. Nice guy, hairdresser, loud & funny. Kept the bar patrons entertained for some time.
I exploded two kegs on me while changing them. Beer just smells horrible after drying on your clothes and hair.
Meanwhile, the water company is out at my house shutting off the water as 32,000 gallons is just ‘down the drain’ due to a calcified valve on the water heater. However, I did have an opportunity to sit and chat with Brian, a firefighter and the gentleman whom we rent from. I enjoyed this conversation very much. A great guy. Caring & keeper of a ‘good vibe’.
With the mess of the day behind me and the comfort of his conversation, watching the sun set of this day, made me happy it was ending.
