I Missed a Week

I missed two weeks actually...

You see, in January of 2018, I set out to release a blog every week for a year. I had been doing it for about a month or two leading up to that, and so I thought I'd keep it going. I'm not one to make New Years Resolutions, but this (along with properly flattening any box I recycled) was my exception. I'm happy to report that I accomplished both goals (though I may have missed a few boxes along the way).

When 2019 rolled around, I decided to keep it going. Our move to Los Angeles had provided plenty of inspiration for writing, and so the blogs kept coming. At times I was 8-12 weeks ahead of schedule, writing blogs well before they were released, just to give me time to write more, which I always did.

Until now.

The last Memorial Day marks two weeks of missed blogs! Did you notice?! Probably not. I don't get enough readers to make much of a difference in the online world, though if you are reading this right now, I appreciate your investment. The lack of readers is probably one reason I faltered actually...another is that I just haven't had much to write about. I'm not sure why, but blog ideas haven't hit me lately, or when they do, I'm too taken by other tasks to write them, or really just don't have the time.

And so, in an effort to at least do something on a weekly basis, I'm expanding my productivity to videos. With any luck, I can release one blog or video, each week. People don't really read anyway, so maybe you'll like this more.

Here is the first one, a live recording of "Let It Go Lullaby," one of the first songs I wrote for our oldest daughter Eleanor. Enjoy!

LYRICS Eleanor Lynn, why are you crying again? Your daddy's here and he's holding you close. Go back to sleep; here is a song you can sing on the way to your dreams so, let it go. Let it go, let it go, baby girl, oh, let it go In this world you will have trouble but take heart, you should know Like the moon and the sun, days will end like they've begun What is left is love, so let it go Eleanor hon' I hope your crying is done Mommy's here and she loves you so Make no mistake, if you're asleep or awake you're a part of our hearts, so let it go Eleanor dear, there is safety here God is with us and I want you to know His name means love, and the stars up above are there for when you're scared, so let it go
