Re: KC; Lawson's Missive and Originality...
<<<<<"I would venture to say (could be
wrong) that we are all folk musicians in a loopy sense. hasn't a lot
of what we do been done before? why are we still fascinated with it
as a methodology and technique? possibly because it's a portal
through which we can express 'ourselves'?"
I do agree with that concept & I would expand upon it using a sorta
but perhaps broader "defining" canvas.
This particular reference to folk music also makes me think of a film clip
saw broadcast during an Documentary piece on PBS concerning the actor,
Now I have never really been a great G. Peck fan nor am i really even that
familiar with much of his work as an actor.
But the documentary I saw held my attention on a number of levels which
both both personal and from a perspective of craft.
I was & still am deeply interested in examining an actors relationship
various characteization, acting methodologiess and contrasting that stuff
with the role and function of a musician ( & also on a more superficial
i was thinking "damn i hope i look that good if i am fortunate enuff to
it to G. Peck's age)".
But at some point in the film, G. Peck was giving a lecture while
at a College-Univ. which was located somewhere in Ireland if i recall.
& at a point during a Q&A session with students at this Irish
College-University, someone from the audience asked Mr. Peck a question
was essentially more or less along the lines of how he would personally
to be remembered.
G. Peck thought for a few seconds and looked quite serious and then
shy smile appeared upon his face.
He replied that he wanted to remembered as being a "good family man" and
as "a good story teller"....and he repeated the words "That he was a good
That struck me as a simple, eloquent and more or less as the equivalent of
what we all sorta do (IMHO) in just about any or all creative capacities
(IMHO) whether we are conscious or unaware of it.
And for me (once again IMHO) the best way for me to describe the "all" of
what I do and the "essence" of "it" without diminishing "it" or weighting
But rather for more accuracy and succinct communication as a starting
those very simple words G. Peck spoke nailed "it" while implying all i (&
perhaps we IMHO) can't articulate so well in a short blurb.
