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 Day46: Straight Corner Life

I drive by these trees daily, but it took a soft snowfall, late night drive home & a stressful night of slinging drinks in a bar.
Ever so involved that you forget to notice the beauty around you? We are all guilty of it. Desensitized to life and just go through the motions. Get in a routine and forget to actually enjoy living? I believe it went from ‘Stop and smell the roses’  to YOLO (generation gap) Either way you cut it, get busy living.
Dont let something pass you by that you’ll regret missing later.
