Oh, man… We all could use a little of this.

Guitars and Life

7 things I’m inclined to think I should say about my life…

  1. Drank for 25 years without regard to the consequences to me and my family.  Ended up a washed up recovering alcoholic
  2. Never lived life to the full – met my now wife when I was 18 and we’re still together 33 years later

  4. Never achieved much within my worklife mostly just feeling like I oiled the pointless wheels of the machinery
  5. I never did enough with my music having not managed to break big at all
  6. Lack of ambition – I never moved away from my home area, I live 0.5 miles from my birthplace still in the same parish of many ancestors

About greg w

I believe chocolate in virtually any configuration is the finest dessert in the history of mankind. I believe my wife is the sexiest woman in the world. I believe modern capitalism will never be replaced by a different -- or better -- form of economics. I believe in clutch hitting in baseball. I believe the Kimber 1911 .45 ACP is the finest handgun ever made in America. I believe the Mossberg Flex 500 pump-action 12 gauge shotgun is the best home defense ever made in America. I believe Tom Waits is the best songwriter of my generation. I believe unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. As CS Lewis once beautifully wrote, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I believe that, on balance, Christianity has done more good for humans than bad. I believe it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant, With that being said, I believe there is a profound difference between knowledge and wisdom. I believe if I yell at the TV during a Colts game, they will play better. Finally, I believe I am in long-term recovery from a number of deep-seated issues that supported and drove my addictions.
