The solo version is better. That's what we are: alone, 'scattered to the wind.' We may have our brothers here and there, but for the most part, we are alone to deal with our memories. When I said thanks, I meant it. You did a great job. I never thought that I'd find something like this, that would apply completely. Good venting on this side. Thanks again.
I knew I wouldn't reach a whole lot of people with that song. After all, military families comprise just 1% of the population. But I knew if I did it right I could make a strong connection with a few people who could use a sense of recognition. Thank you for taking the time to let me know that I've done my job. As Woody Guthrie said: Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.
Well, it fit my life. RahSlaid Cleaves responded on 01/12/2014 Next question
Slaid - love the music. A funny connection - I'm from Maine and work in the roofing industry. I work with a very good commercial roofing salesperson named Rob Kyle who is also the frontman of Austin band Dexter Freebish. I guess it's like Maine there, everybody's gotta have 3 jobs! -MartySlaid Cleaves responded on 01/14/2014
