Frogs Make it All Right

The Naughty Frogs practiced last night, and again it felt really great to have a guitar slung across my body. We've only practiced three times now, but you can (well, I can) really hear the difference. While we're not where we want to be, we're on our way there, and it's a great feeling. It's hitting that part in the music where it says [HEAVY G C G C], that makes it all worthwhile.

The chords, the strings, the cables, the amps, they make the troubles fade away. It's so much more than music on a CD, so much stronger than a hot new MP3. I love music, and I love listening to music, but there's not a song in the world that makes me feel the same as the music that comes from the Naughty Frogs.

I hope that other people have something in their life that can make them feel the same way. When things are difficult, when you're tired and beat down from disappointment, you have that chance to make it all so much better. It's not just that the music allows me to escape from the troubles, although that's part of it. Creating music gives me the chance to clean my mind. It clears things up, energizes me, and gets me ready to face further difficulties. It makes me a better husband, a better father, and a better person.
