A Moment to Reflect
Lately it seems that while life may take a long time that it is over much too soon. It is hard to believe that I’ve been singing with Mike McCoy for more than forty-six years and it’s been forty-three years since I started singing with The Brothers Four. One of the things that make this One of Those Times in a Life is that making music and sharing the journey with McCoy and The Brothers Four is more satisfying than ever and while it still feels like the best days might still be in front of us I am also aware of how precious each day and performance is.
The video in Episode Five is called When I Was Young and This Old Guitar Was New. It talks about the many things I didn’t know when this all began as well as a sense of wonder and love I feel at this point in the journey. The audio essay is called The Mourning Ryde. That’s the name of the group McCoy and I were part of in college. The story in the essay talks mostly about the group’s brief brush with fame and fortune.
