The Importance of Showing Up
This morning I opened the Zoom room for Thursdays Circle Coffee, a meeting I host every Thursday. Some weeks I do not feel like setting it up, making the link available, or even being present. Thank heavens, I have a co-host, Grant Walden, so the coffee hour can go on without me if I am just not up to it.
Grant Walden, ElizaBeth Hill, and Jim Parker joined me for coffee this morning. Grant is a Muscle Shoals studio owner, engineer, songwriter, musician, and more. Jim has been in music longer than I have, and that is saying a lot. He wrote “Chicken Truck” by John Anderson and many, many more songs. He hosts the monthly Jim Parker’s Songwriter Showcase at the Huntsville Von Braun Civic Center. Elizabeth is a Native American Canadian songwriter, screenwriter, and more. Grant I work with now; Jim is a newer friend; ElizaBeth and I go back to the late eighties.
We talked about everything from the mundane to the sublime. I am glad I showed up.
