A Lesson Learned

Last night, while in a bit of a jovial mood, I decided to write a blog post about a piece of music that makes me happy everytime I hear it. Quickly, the question became how to pick one from dozens, if not hundreds of songs that bring an instant smile to my face?  My plan was further complicated by the desire to find a video that would provide a pleasing visual to go along with the music because we all know that good visuals are important.

Two hours  and countless videos later . . .  nothing.  I would have posted this stunning version of Sister Hazel’s “Concede” , but it was an audio only file from their “Before The Amplifiers 2” compilation.  The actual video of “Champagne High” was a close runner up. (if you are a  SH fan, these are must views).  I listened to music from Firefall, The Outlaws, Marshall Tucker Band and Pure Praire League in my quest for my song. (pun intended).

As I searched from band to band, I watched, listened and remembered why I enjoyed those songs. In the end, I had nothing to show for it and my eyelids were getting heavier by the minute.

Defeated, I went to bed.

This morning, as I was scrolling through my feeds, I found the meme below  and after reading it, realized that although I failed in providing an interesting blogpost last night, I enjoyed a couple of hours of great music and a glass of Bulleit Bourbon.

Was that all so bad and was I a failure for it?  I think not.

Now, I can look back and see a nice evening, recovering from my defeat with a relatively interesting blogpost the following morning.

Plus, I learned an important lesson.

    that sounds like an enjoyable night.

    that story you included has always intrigued me, and a few years ago I looked at it from a different perspective: https://jborden.com/2015/11/25/the-businessman-and-the-fisherman-whats-your-perspective/
