3 years ago I began this journey

After returning from the Banjothon in 2009 I wrote the following(My first Blog entry; in part).

........I guess what scares me the most about this undertaking is that after all my remembrances are no longer stored in my body, what will be left of me; a few bones in a bag of skin; for who I am is not of my making. Many, many wonderful people have a lot of time, effort and friendship invested in who I am. After all my thoughts, feelings and words are released, there will be little left of me.
Its been a wonderful trip so far, and I'll share it with anyone who wishes to take a few minutes...

I had great intentions of writing more often , I've not been a good steward of the oportunity, I will do better!
I have committed some of myself, but when I sit down to put words to paper, so many wonderful memories fight each other for the space I am to fill at that sitting... Possibly its just a way those memories see an opportunity to escape my captivity and and again flow in the light that made them so special in my world of the past...

I only hope and pray at some point in time; some word I say, some action I take, or some deed I'm associated with, makes a difference for someone....not for them to remember my name but to make all my friends efforts in me worthwhile.

  1. Doug,
    None of us were intended to be on this earth forever. You have touched many people with your music, your teaching, and your contributions to bluegrass and banjo. You have made lives many lives a little brighter along your way.
