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.

  1. Sounds like good company! I hope to join y’all some time. Remember when you, Rita and I were going to Zoom —postponed twice and it never happened?🤪 I’d still love to do that!
