Gypsy Supper. Seuss. Smith. Art from a Spiritual Age.

CW WMandAlene.jpg
It’s the last week in March and my self-imposed writing deadline for my new book is upon me. SO I won’t quite as attentive to Staublog this week. I decided to treat you to a refreshing audio interview of William and Alene (foto right) local musicians who I met after they read my book and sent me their “Gypsy Supper” CD. I’m an advocate of craftsmanlike art as a passage to influence and they’ve got it!

I’m feeling anxious (a more spiritual less condemning word would be “eager,” but let’s be honest it is “anxious”), to figure out what’s next occupationally and I realize it is because I am incompetent at the non-work part of my life. When I am home and not away at my “important job” I learn how ill-suited I am to deal with a precocious twelve-year-old daughter, OR with handling adult sibling disagreements OR with maintaining an acre of property OR with listening and being attentive to my wife. Work has always been a place where I can take charge and allow my competence to shine (or at least I deceive myself into believing this is the case). Home and non-work is where all those evil uncontrollables rise up to smite me. Oddly enough, I think this is exactly where God wants me how else do I learn how “His strength is made perfect in my weakness?”

For fun read about the “Gospel according to Dr. Seuss.” For enlightenment read about art in an age of spirituality. For an mind bender read about “Under God.” And for a quirky look at the Passion read Kevin Smith, producer of Dogma.

Remember, “these are the best of times and the worst of times, but they are the only times we have.” (For Now).
