Good day all, another wonderful day to be alive. Therefore our wishing may go on.

Today’s writing prompt is:

This is a great question and one to consider more than the surface of it. If you wish you knew how to do it, then what is preventing it?

Today, I was practicing one of my loves and that is listening to music. Knowing how to be a musician, is something I wish I knew how to do.

  • I’d like to play bass like John Entwistle.
  • I’d like to write songs like Ronnie Van Zant
  • I’d like to play the drums with the maniacal energy of Keith Moon but the technical expertise of Neil Peart.
  • I’d like to be able to do the guttural yell Roger Daltrey does on the song Won’t get fooled again. And at the same time be able to harmonize like CSN.
  • I’d like to play piano like Billy Powell
  • I’d like to play guitar with the grace of Carlos Santana and the occasional windmill of Pete Townsend.
  • You know, maybe if I live a long life I’ll give it a shot.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
