CD-a-Day: Good Music For Bad News Edition

Chevelle: Wonder What's Next

I've been running into a lot of old friends within the last two weeks, people I haven't seen for years or so. Twice in Albertson's, once in Target, and certainly on Facebook. I sense that, with the great changes in my life regarding baby Yusef and other things that are coming to a head, God is sending me these people for a reason. I'm not sure what that reason is yet, but I'm afraid I have an idea, and it has everything to do with getting me to see the value these people have in my life, as well as the value I have in theirs, and to think about upping the ante in both regards, especially as my intentions and reputation are put to the test.

This has what to do with Chevelle? Well, it has to do with putting this disk in and cranking it up and rocking out in my car on the way to and from work, thinking about my relationships with friends and former friends, those I care about and those who have chosen not to care about me.

There is some culling that has happened in my life, and not by my choice...people that have chosen, specifically, to have nothing more to do with me. Also, those that I have neglected because of time or other interests. To both, I am sorry for broken relationship. Sorry, as in sorrowful. I realize that things are changing, and change is good, though sometimes painful. So, if nothing else, the title of this disk is certainly appropriate here, and now.
