Lloyd is a poet in a way I can only aspire to.
Thanks, Jason :)

Oh, you do well. I tried a stint at song writing and found that my work was beaver crap (wood splinters mixed with shit). That was back in the 90s when every punk in town was in a band.

Itโ€™s funny though, youโ€™d think listening to the great troubadours would make you more bitter, but it has the opposite effect with me. Knowing my own limitations frees me to enjoy the great masters.

Right now Iโ€™m thinking about Townes Van Zandt. I listen to his lyrics and am completely dumbstruck. I just canโ€™t imagine how he can take everyday experiences and create something so unique yet perfectly clear, all the while being deep in his cups.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
