A Face to Call Home
Dear John Mayer,
I waited until the official release of the album today to listen, so I could build some excitement into my day. Just finished listening to ‘A Face To Call Home”, I am crying. It is magnificent and just perfect. Thank you, thank you thank you. I love that your music mirrors my life and we aren’t even the same age. Please don’t ever give up your music.

Your absence will be felt, but here’s the thing; your real fans want you to succeed as a person. This medical silence is actually good for your inner voice. It will help you weed out the junk in your life. I know, I’ve had the same experience. Take advantage if it; write, play your guitar, go visit your Dad and play cards with him. Do what you do best, observe the world…quietly. It sucks, I know, but really, your overall health is what is important. Fame and celebrity are not the glue that holds the world together. But, keen observation distilled with some great guitar and enduring and mellifluous composition is what makes it easier for all of us to digest. That is why we love what you do. Stay strong. Get at it kid.
I have no idea how to introduce this post, so I’m skipping the first paragraph.
During rehearsal on Tuesday, it came to mind that I should see my throat doctor because something didn’t feel/sound right. I went in for a visit on Wednesday and a scope of my vocal cords revealed that the granuloma…
First I lost a job, then I lost my friends. I’m not sure why they had to go hand in hand, I needed my friends the most when I was unemployed. So I moved 6 times for financial reasons and made a few new friends along the way and then finally got a job and moved again and lost 3 more dear dear OLD friends. WHY? I know why I lost the first one, I was so unhappy in the job I lost that I turned into someone who wasn’t fun to be around. But the rest are a mystery to me. Do you know why? How have you treated your friends that have lost their jobs recently? Your family members? This perpetual unemployment is changing the way we behave to one another. Are you being helpful? Or just resenting that your friend can no longer meet you for $6 Starbucks?
New Year’s Eve morning in Northern Illinois near Wisconsin. The perfect way to end the new year by doing what I love, photography.. Enjoy.
Happy 34th Birthday John Mayer
This year’s birthday wish is a small one, yet no less important. You have been silent most of the year. You needed a break and I gave it willingly because no man can live his entire life in the spotlight and remain sane. This year your fans have grown also; we looked inside and had to remember what we loved about your music, wit, humor and intelligence. We miss you like an ex-boyfriend that we really want to be friends with again, hoping to glimpse the person we were so attracted to, hoping to be blessed with your attention, and made to feel special. Most of us know that if you allow an ex to become a grown up and you act appropriately yourself, exes can sometimes make the best lifelong friends.
We miss our friend, that sexy, talented, reflective goofball that brightens our day and makes us feel just a little special, a little less alone.
Take care of your voice, I look forward to hearing it soon. And Happy Birthday, use your next year wisely.
