Happy 50th Birthday Mom

Fruits of the Spirit

She is unconditional.
Agape with thick black hair;
Extending gracious embraces.

A laugh so infectious the night smiles.
Humoring through hardships with serious content,
Her strength so obvious.

Like a river, tumbling perfectly still.
Making treaties with her eyes,
Cultivating harmony with her soft hands.

An artist of longsuffering,
She knows time will come.
Waiting; her dreams dance with a divine tomorrow.

Even to strangers her warmth is magnetic.
Tenderly striving to remain without enemy,
Her words serve souls.

Her reputation precedes her.
Virtuous in every way; Proverbially.
Like all of creation, she is good.

Always is her way of life.
Steadfast like a pillar, never letting down.
Loyalty as staunch as armies.

Holding hands at her hero’s bedside
Hymns on her lips and in her face
Gently her spirit caresses the pain.

Denying self she follows Him.
Bearing cross daily; arduously effortless.
Composed, she forms fruitful family.

Hey all. I just wanted to let you in on a little project I have been working on. My buddy Greg Lafollettte wrote a concept album as his musical alter-ego from the Khrusty Brothers. It is called Khorky Custer Khrusty Presents The Klangs. He asked me to collaborate with him in writing a stage show / performance art piece to accompany the live concert. It is going to be super sweet. This is the promotional video we made. I ran the camera, Tony Droge is the dancer. Please share it with your friends.

I have never been in a band before since I am completely musically retarded so this is probably the closest I will ever come. I am also hype because my good buddy Nick is playing bass for The Klangs.

We have concerts coming up:

September 13 at the Bottleneck in Lawrence
September 19 at the Brick
September 20 at Crosstown Station
