A Love Letter To Musicians

Thank you for what you do.

The way you open your soul and share your inner world with us.

It is not always an easy place to see, feel, hear, but it is lyrical, and it is musical, and it is meaningful.

We lost Chester Bennington yesterday, the Singer of LINKIN PARK.

And a couple months before that, Chris Cornell.

But the list goes on and on.

Some of you live a pretty hard life, wealthy or not.

Fame or not.

Your pain can not be easily extinguished.

I Played Guitar and Sang for a handful of months in 1999 & 2000-01.

I purged my reality of that time, and it was good.

I never went beyond Rehearsals, but it changed me forever.

My Nephew has my SG, and my Girlfriend has my Fender.

And I still have my Dark Blue Alvarez Acoustic.

What you do is more than Poetry.

It is Blood, Light, Pain, Dark, Hope and so much more.

There are a lot of people out there who are struggling from one day to the next.

You help them make it.

But who helps you.

This Planet can be a Lonely Place.

A Painful Place.

A Beautiful Place.

Sometimes all the Therapy in the World can’t help out.

But it’s definitely worth a try.

So say the ones that Love you.

I’m sorry for your Torment, though it brings us Magic.

I’m sorry for your Darkness, though it keeps us Company.

Nuff Said

2016

EPILOGUE

 

2016 was a good year for me.

Battling on and off with different forms of Anxiety, from March, to November 2016, I found myself going out more, which really made me feel not only more alive, but more connected with the Human Race. Which was nice.

Also from March through the end of the year, I began PreProduction of my Web Series, “White Jade”, which has been both fulfilling, and illuminating.

We lost some sincerely Epic Entertainers this year, which took a hardy blow at me… And many of us.

But I can not find it in my heart to blame this on 2016. And so I won’t.

But beyond that, I did lose the third of my four Uncles in this life… Sadly, and Ironically, he passed on my Birthday.

I admit, this took a bit of the wind out of my sails… Especially watching my Mom dealing with it.

But as sad is all of that seems, for me 2016 was a true success.

My love asked me to define what it was to be a ‘Dreamer’ last night…

I actually had to think about it for a moment.

And this morning, I came up with this…

The definition of being a ‘Dreamer’ for me is, ‘Imagining What Is Possible.”

No Expectations… Just an immense amount of Hope, and Creativity.

I Welcome in 2017… Even the Number itself seems promising.

But for the most part, Life is what we put into it… And so I will continue to pour much of my Light into it.

I hope you all have a Happy New Year.

James- (DarkJade)

So Sad…

One Of The Best Voices I’ve Ever Heard

Such An Amazing Human Being

Rest In Peace Brother

And Thank You For All That You Gave, And Were

My Favorite Song Of His “Careless Whisper” (1984) At The Time It Came Out, It Wasn’t My Thing… But Over Time Became My Favorite Song By Him

“Faith” (1987) Great Song, And I Loved The Video

“Father Figure” (1987) Great Song I Remember My Bro Going Into A Booth And Making A Recording Of This Song With Him Singing, lol It Was Terrible ha

“Amazing” (2004) Great Song

Truth Be Known, More Than George Michael’s Songs, His Actual Voice I Always Felt Was One Of The Best I Had Ever Heard

And He Just Seemed Like A True Beautiful Human Being Full Of Light

You Will Be Missed

Ethereal Transitions

From out of the Woodwork…

From the Backs of our Minds
