Steel on the Inside, Steel on the Outside? (Or, "On getting a haircut screwed up")

Life is funny.

About 36 hours ago, I wrote "Steel on the Inside, Silk on the Outside."

I think most guys are afraid to do this – to wear light colors, to go to a spa, to being silly and lighthearted, these traditionally feminine things. I think most guys go out of their way to appear tough, rugged, macho. And you know why? I think it’s because most of ‘em are soft on the inside, scared, powerless, aimless.

My philosophy is be as strong as steel on the inside, and light and gentle like silk on the outside.


Early On a Sunday Morning

On Where Pianos Roam

It's a moderately cold and cloudy day here in Nashville this morning.  A soft gray light pours into my window.  I'm hoping for a better week to come.  I've had to deal with a very unprofessional and very immature person this week.  This has thrown everything off a little. I've decided that the next time I hire someone for work I will ask her or him that they need to be respectful and professional if they want to do work for me.  Plain and simple.  It seems as if this kind of thing is understood, but my goodness, sometime I guess it will need to be stated clearly. On another, more lighthearted note, things are going along smoothly for the CD Release.  Rehearsals have started.  Musicians have been hired.  The setlist is worked out.  All is good.  This is going to be the most elaborate show I've done so far.  It's going to be so much fun. Last night, a friend of mine invited me to see the movie, "Changeling".  It is directed by Clint Eastwood and stars Angelina Jolie.  Eastwood is in true form with this one.  I think this is the kind of movie every parent should see.  I don't want to give it away, but I will say that it is appalling that this story actually happened.  This world can be such a cruel place. This is a solid film.  See it if you have a chance. Hopefully, I'll have a pretty cool post tomorrow. Stay warm, -g
