They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. For the most part that is true. Yet, sometimes the apple falls from the tree and rolls down a steep hill. I had two great parents. My mother sang in a traveling gospel group called the Marshallaires. For all the parents that wonder if they raised their children in the right fashion, after one of them found the low road, I would say that it's not necessarily the parents fault. Sometimes the roots of the tree can be real strong but the winds blow in all directions. I had two great parents. I would also say that all goodbyes are not gone.
That wayward apple sometimes falls in a stream and floats away, but sometimes it's picked up by a hungry bird. That bird pecks through the good parts and drops the seeds into the mouth of a volcano which spits it out ....charboiled and hurt. Sometimes ....sometimes that seed falls upon a fresh new soil, ready to be replanted - born again. If the original birthing tree was sound and solid, the DNA will not lie.
I love gospel music. The messages are so powerful. Even the titles of the songs can take me somewhere, for instance ...Celebrate New Life ...It All Comes Down To Love ....Born For This. I KNOW there are a few people that feel me on this one! Words are so powerful and the right words are king. I do listen to some rap music but I wouldn't be writing this kind of post if rap music was the subject.
This post was going to go in another direction but I am going to do something different today and stop this one right here (there Rich
Yep, a nice short post that fits right where it belongs. I however will give a hint of the direction I was thinking about taking this post. What do you think about when you hear Fort Dix? What? The Marines, boot camp or the Iraq war? Well, none of those thangs were on tap. They have something going on down there that inspired a post that would have destroyed this one. Maybe I shouldn't say it would have destroyed it. It would have changed the flavor.
Do you like gospel music? What thoughts come to mind when you hear Fort Dix? Where did "Hey buddy, how can I make it fat" come from?
This new post is busting to get out. I know this is a Saturday and most take off from the blog world but maybe a few had nothing better to do than visit CareyCarey or just stopped in to say hello. Whatcha say?
