Blogging Absense / Fall Weather Inspiration (Or Since I've Been Gone)

Be forewarned.  This is completely, 100% off the top of my head, stream of conscience, rambling blogging.  My only purpose here is to get myself writing again.  So please pardon any unnecessary words or incomplete thoughts.

Today is the first day of the fall in my mind.  College football season begins today.  (Nevermind the boring-ish Thursday/Friday openers.)  Fall is a gorgeous season, and seems to bring out my creative side more than any other season.  I can’t put my finger on a reason.  Maybe because fall is the most colorful season.  Maybe it’s because I head inside more due to falling temperatures.  Either way, I feel inspired to spew some words onto the internetz.  

I got engaged to a beautiful ladyperson since I last posted anything.  She’s not a musician.  Which is fine.  I’ll be musician enough for both of us.  Or at least try.  

Of late, I’ve found some surprisingly good Christian musicians out there.  So much CCM just flat out blows.  Rivers & Robots.  Josh Garrels.  Judah & The Lion.  Others.  Wonderful to see that not everyone has rolled over and opened their Christian cliche notebook for lyrical inspiration.  

Maybe I should try my hand at songwriting again.  But I was perfectly mediocre at it.  At best.  

Either way, I love some of the music I’ve heard recently, I love my fiancee, I love football, and I love fall weather.  Can’t wait for the future.
