Happy (Would Be) Birthday, Joe Strummer

Just a few more minutes left of Joe Strummer's birthdate. I've thought on and off all day about how to mark the occasion. But, I think I'll just say this:

Thank you, Joe. Thanks for being you. Thanks for your belief in change. And for your struggles Thanks for how you lived your life. You continue to inspire me. Your passion for people taught me to seek out others' stories. Your philosophy taught me that change is possible...or at very least worth working for. I could go on and on. I so wish I could have heard you play live. I would love to have spoken with you. Your life mattered. And mine is better because of you. Happy birthday.

LISTEN TO THE AUGUST 13, 2015 DIRTY ROOTS RADIO SHOW

Had a heavy heart all day today. About a lot of things. Lotta different strands runnin' through the mind. Some things about the world...but most of it personal stuff in my own head.

When I get that way, I always think if I can get ahold of a clean end of just one of those jumbled thoughts, I'll unravel it all on the air. We're all friends, right?

But it was all to jammed up. Sometimes I think I feel like if I slow down enough to start unwinding some of those thoughts on the air, and let those thoughts out...that the feelings will catch up to me and get me, or something.

I'm not even sure I know what that means...but it's how I felt tonight. Every time I'd start to share...I'd have to keep shufflin', keep spinnin', keep movin', keep playin'...

Ah, but (outside of a mislabeled and therefore aggravatingly misplaced Willie Nelson song) the muse brought the healin' feelin'. And, ultimately, that was what I needed. Time just FLEW by tonight.

It did my heart good. Thank you for sharing it with me.

I hope you enjoy...
