GC Myers- On the RiseSick days.  The flu has come to our home and we find ourselves absolutely miserable, just waiting and hoping for it to somehow pass by.  Haven’t been getting a single thing done but I wanted to at least post my Sunday morning music.  First thing this morning, every song I listened to was like shoving an ice pick in my temple.  But I finally settled in a bit and was able to listen to some songs.  They all happened to be sad songs but I guess that’s a side effect from the illness.

I thought I would share one of these sad songs, Waitin’ Around to Die from the late great Townes Van Zandt.  This is from the 1976 documentary Heartworn Highways, a film that captured the beginnings of the alt-country movement of that time.  This film features Townes singing to his girlfriend and his neighbor Uncle Seymour Washington, a retired blacksmith born to ex-slaves.  Great song, kind of capturing how my head feels this morning.

Hope you have a good day.
