Hotel Tools

November 28, 2013

Rain + Guitar + Boredom + Apogee ONE + Great Song = me hooking up with the Queen of California in my hotel room today in Sydney.

Wish I could do more than “whisper sing” but I’m always afraid I’m gonna get a knock on the door because the room next door is full of people that hate soul music.

David Ryan Harris “I Believe In Us”

First new music since 2006.

I Believe In Us (David Ryan Harris/Martin Johnson)

I don’t think we ask for much more than we deserve; for more than we’re worth.
People say we’re out of touch and that dreamers will always crash back to earth, 
but you plus me…..still we dream.
Through valley deep and darkness wide I’m stronger with you here at my side.
Call us foolish.  Call us young, but we’ve pledged our allegiance no matter what comes.
You plus me is everything.
Yes I believe in love.
Yes I believe in love.
I looked for a reason and you are my reason.
Because when I saw you I saw the light I’ve been waiting for all my life.
Yes I believe in us tonight.
I don’t need much more than this to hold the divine, to feel what is bliss.
Because in a world gone crazy I’m mad for you 
and I’ll still be when all these dog days are through.
You plus me……we’ve got wings
Yes I believe in love.
Yes I believe in love.
I looked for a reason and I found a reason.
Because when I saw you I saw the light I’ve been waiting for all my life.
Yes I believe in us tonight.

I believe in what I feel inside
I believe in this love tonight

The Message

The worst thing is the message that this sends

I assume you know me, as we are Tumblr friends. 
I assume you know my temperament.
I assume you know how prone I am to search for peaceful resolution.
I assume you know that I am generally articulate and respectful.

Let’s for argument’s sake assume that it was me walking through that neighborhood on the way to see my father. Or my wife. Or maybe. I’m looking to buy some property. Or maybe, God forbid, I just want to go for a walk. 

I can guarantee you that if I thought someone was following me, I would at some point confront the person following me.

The verdict in the Zimmerman case sends the message that, I had better not confront the follower.
The stranger. 
The possible vigilante. 
The could be racist. 
The self appointed John Wayne. 
Because he could shoot me and get away with it.

So I have to walk with my plume in check.
Shuffle with my eyes down and turn my face towards the ground.
Make sure that I’m not wearing a hoodie.
And just to be safe, I should have on some dockers.
And above all, not stand MY OWN GOD DAMNED GROUND.

Because even if a 911 operator advises the stranger that is following me to stand down, he can shoot me and get away with it.

That’s the message that is being sent here.

So I walk with my plume in check.
Shuffle with my eyes down and my face towards the ground.
And I make sure that I’m not wearing a hoodie
And just to be safe, I wear dockers.
And above all, I’ll surrender MY OWN GOD DAMNED GROUND.
To get from point a to b

That ain’t living.
No matter what your race is.
Gun culture wins. 
Stereotypes survive.
To all the dark skinned kids who get this message and turn down their shine so they don’t get shot, I apologize.
That ain’t living. I know.
