I’ve reached a point in my life(due to age perhaps) that I have decided something crucial for my continuation. Inspiration! That’s what it all really comes down to for me. I am so completely bored with the uninspiring parts of life. It doesn’t have to be miraculous to be an inspiration. For…
What about me………I have to say that when I read this I felt the words “good parenting” hit me between the eyes like a brick. ;( That’s after arguing with my 12 year old daughter this morning. I had just been thinking to my self, why am I hard on her, she’s “12”. When we screw up with our kids though, they are forgiving. Did I do something wrong when my son who is graduating from college in two weeks says he is going to work for a while at the climbing outpost and restaurant that he has come to love. Making sure the people who travel there have the proper equipment for their climbing expeditions. And….. cooking them meals, sharing his love of rock climbing with the people he will meet. I think a nobel profession is one that makes a difference in the lives of others. Being “inspiring” to the people we connect with. Thanks for that Pat. You are a inspiration! Have you climbed a real rock yet? ~Peace!~ Teri
I’m not going to complain anymore.
I realize that my complaints are really due to boredom. I have no “real” problems. Oh except when wifi is bad and playing Words With Friends is slow. *joke
Really I have nothing to complain about.
New rule(for me):
If its not funny and or it isn’t a reflection of my awesome life, don’t say it. Amen
Hope you guys are doing well.
Gonna write some songs next week. I’m real psyched!
Hi Pat, I am so happy to hear about the writing! I think that the bowling ball is still picking up speed and the peak of your creativity is yet to come. I’ve been listening to some Zeplin lately after many years of not. I love your version of “Ramble On” and recently found an interesting fact that Plant and Page wrote the song early in ‘69 (I’m guessing late Feburary), for a release in Oct. of ‘69. The fantasy of Lord Of The Rings inspired them. Just some food for thought ;) Happy writing! ~Peace~ Teri (see you in Noblesville, IN, in July, 119 days :) Keeping my fingers crossed for a Cincinnati show (my ONLY life complaint is not being able to see more @train shows!)
I wrote a blog a week ago and deleted it on accident. Bummed me out so it took till now to try again.
Just wanted to wish you all a happy 2013 and let you in on what is happening in our lives, or at least what’s happening with Train.
We have our first song on country radio, Bruises, and we are…
Pat, It so made my day reading this blog!! A ray of hope and a promise for joy in this year of 2013. Just what I needed on this rainy, snow melting, sad kind of day. Thanks! We lost a 22 year old kid in our community to a fire this week. Can’t stop thinking about the family. Wish I could ease their pain. I know that is always a longing for you also. Whenever you hear of such sadness, you want to ease the pain. I just watched the video of when you met Paul Rogers. Such a cool connection you two had. Like minds I guess ;) It looks like 2013 will be another year of meeting cool people and changing lives through your music. And….easing the pain for so many people you will never even meet. ~Teri~
Everything that I will be writing here for the next long while will be very positive. I go in weird phases when I lose perspective and I whine a tad. Okay I complain a ton.
I’m taking a break from being that way. I am here to write uplifting tales from the fatty under belly of the Tuna. The…
Pat, You asked so………. When I first heard these words ”You can move in, I don’t care where you’ve been, cuz everybody has a past”, It gave me the desire to listen to all your music and it led me to, “you turn me into someone I would rather be”, “the shade of you is on the brink of changing all the ways I see the world”. Your music makes me feel like it is possible for another person to love me no matter what, true unconditionally love. And I hold on to that hope because of your music. I listen to it everyday and thank God for it ;) Also, your music is so diverse. No matter what my need or mood, there is a song that will bring a smile to me. Each album is complete from the first song to the last. Keep writing with your love filled words and the stars will be jealous of your shine!! ~Peace~ Teri
everything seems as though I’m viewing it from sleepy eyes. It’s all a bit dreamy and distant. The calm of not being in a tour bus is met with the business of being in a good sized family. There is always so much to do. I’m not the sort that has a nanny not the type that smokes a pipe and looks up…
Pat, Yes, you were definitely made for something else! I am able to touch the lives of people and find it so fulfilling. My children’s lives, the autistic children I sometimes work with, but you, you touch millions of lives. Always positive and filled with brotherly love. It must sometimes feel like a burden to have so much power, responsibility. We have to work to achieve peace in our lives, inner turmoil is so much more natural, at least for me. Knowing what you are “made for” is most of the battle for inner peace. I am so psyched to hear about the new projects to speak of. You don’t know how psyched ;)) ~Peace~ Teri
From giving my t-shirt to a young girl on the Today Show to giving a signed guitar away to kids each night of this tour, I am credited with being generous or compassionate or whatever it may be. I appreciate all of that.
Now I want to give credit to those who REALLY deserve it.
I have also cried the last two times I have seen you give the guitar to a kid at a show. It is so moving, such a once-in-a-life-time experience for them. Brotherly love is the way I expain the feeling at your shows. I am hooked! I had a hard time deciding weather or not to take my 11 year old daughter to the Dayton show. I thought, what do have to look forward to if you get to do such cool things at age 11? So, I didn’t take her ;(( At the show I worked my way through the crowd to the front and by the end I wish I was sharing the night with my daughter! How many times in life do you have to experience a Train show? Not enough! You only live once and you have to take the opportunities when they are here. I hope I will have the chance to take her to a show in the future, hopefully many ;)) You deserve every ounce of credit for making people happy with your music.. Thankyou ! ~Peace~ Teri
