IT SMACKED OF WINTER

HI EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE,

Snow has fallen in Red Deer I’m afraid to say. If you are not in Canada, maybe it is different for you. Anyway life to me is a day to day ‘motion picture’. My days start and end with a feeling of intense focus. Winter is coming, and now I write. This new project has got me going. Now it is your time  to smile, to close your eyes and your mind if only for a moment… and rest.

Until next time, here are a couple of lines from my tale called…

‘EMILY’S MOMENT’

EMILY'S MOMENT

 I lived next door to Emily in that dump hotel. I’m the watcher. Before I could tell her story, you’ll have to hear mine.

IT SEEMED RATHER GREY

HI EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE,

It is a rather dreary day in good old RED DEER. But I am excited to be sending a beautiful story to CBC THIS WEEK! I told you when I started this journey I was not published yet, though I will be. That message has not changed, if anything I am getting stronger every day.

Alright, it is our time to close our eyes and our thoughts if only for a moment. until next time a few words from a little story called…

WINDSWEPT

Windswept

The air was so fresh this morning it reminded me of sheets  flapping in the breeze from mother’s clothes line. She walked into the splendor that was the day, sun warm, breeze nice. And as she moved, if you closed your eyes, it was an encompassing feeling–the smell of a gentle rain. You know , like a dream.

A TIME TO TALK

HI EVERYONE EVERYWHERE,

This week I just want to talk. You know this journey I am on sometimes tires me. I not only write and play music, I am also an advocate for the disabled, like me. Somehow I not only survive with my injuries, I relish the fight. The way I fight prejudice is to always stand as straight as I can and play music with some very incredible people. And I write, from my soul, for me and of course for all of you. I guess I have always been a dreamer because my path has not been easy. But, know this, I am a good man who was given a second chance. You know I was in a coma for days, and when I awoke, I was alone and afraid and now I am not alone… I have all of you.

I always give you a picture; this week you get me, sorry.

JAMES

Anyway it is our time to close our eyes and our minds if only for a moment.

Until next time….

LUNCH WITH THE KNOBBLERS

jamesghutch

Hi Everyone, Everywhere.

It has been an interesting week. Someone hacked into my website and had it up for sale. Luckily for me the people at WIX were excellent. All fixed, great job. You know I GOT ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH! Just know this, we are disabled not fools. Ok, that is it on that.

Moving on. I hope you are all well. If the last few days have been tough on you, it’s time to rest; you know our way. Just close your eyes and rest your thoughts if only for a moment. I told you all I was working on #9. Done. Oh, say, by the way so is #10. I am playing live again with the band.  We are called SOULFUL NOIZE. We kick it good, music it just works.

Now on to our tale.

A TASTE OF FROST

jamesghutch

HI EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE,  This week has been real good. I am in the process of sending another story to a publisher in ONTARIO. Everything takes time, and patience once was plentiful, now maybe a little less. Since this damn accident, I had to re-train my thought process. it is ongoing.

All right   –  time for fun. On Friday afternoon, our band SOULFUL NOIZE played for around 120 people.  Not bad for 1oclock in the afternoon. We did 2 hours, and like I always say,  MUSIC just does it. Now it is time to carry on the journey, a little  story I like to call-

“GOOD-BYE OLD BOY”

Old Man

‘Why back in 1946 they had two or three colors.(That’s right).    Black, brown and  blonde, oh yah grey. But, I don’t think of that as a colour,  more of a curse.

That my friends is all you get today. Peace and…

THERE IS ORANGE ON THE HORIZON

HI EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE

I fear winter is upon us my friends. I find the struggle a little harder right now, in my own life. But, this will pass quickly. I have been doing positive things. As of Friday, I became a member of THE WRITER’S GUILD OF ALBERTA. I started this journey alone, now there are so many to thank, I get overwhelmed. Less than one year ago, I began this dream on bits of paper, a plastic bag and hope.  It is slow and it is not easy,  but, it can be done. Dare to dream…close your eyes and open your mind for just a moment and rest.

Until later, here is something more from…

‘ESTHER FLANNIGAN’S MAGNIFICENT ADVENTURE’

Esther

Earl, if you remember, I sent him to keep an eye on Esther. Be vigilant! ‘Mr. Ferlan Spence’ you know, he would say that (I bet). Vigilant–in this case that means EARL don’t screw this up.  Fine, Earl thought. I’ll be viv–, I mean vegulant, uh I mean I’ll follow her. (That’s a bet).

Okay, until next time.

DO YOU FEEL IT?

HI EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE

Wow, it is the end of Sept. already. Well what are you going to do?  The birds are getting prepared to fly south as they always do, at least the smart ones. I have found on my journey these incredible musicians inspire me. We can find a focus as injured men or have things been shifted a little, maybe in our favour. All you people around the world, it is time for us all to take but a moment,  you know, close your eyes and your mind and rest.  I thought I cheated you on last week’s tale, so here is a little more of…

‘GOOD BYE OLD BOY’

Old man talking on a bench

 My friend Jimmy Cox is alone, he is 78 years old, nobody to bring him hot chocolate on those cold wintery nights. On those bad nights, Mary and I hold our cocoa in one hand and in the other we hold each other, and watch the snow fly.

Harry thinks to himself, what happened to Jimmy, to be so alone? I hate winter, but now,  Harry thinks,  I wonder if… oh heck!

( NEVER EVER GIVE UP)

Until later be kind to yourself and to others.
