Trout and Coffee…”Summer in New England”

Here’s a new one from Kyle Dempsey….who posts on YouTube under “Trout and Coffee”.

It’s good stuff…quiet and measured in tone….beautiful.

But….given an appreciative and artistic eye…most of our lives would look just as beautiful.

Well, maybe not most…but mine would.

I’m working a lot at a job that alternates between beingĀ  “perfect” and “perfectly frustrating”.

Perspective and a strong internal fight to see it in the right light is the only thing that keeps it from shifting over to “frustrating”.

It’s all a matter of keeping my head screwed on straight.

No….that’s not right.

My head is attached a different way than “screwed on”.

I screw up….sometimes I get screwed over….but my head isn’t attached by screwing it on.

I’d be some kind of robot if that was the case.

I’m no robot….I’m a MAN.

Like Muddy Waters.

Spelled M….A….N.

I am a free man.

Why do I feel shackled in my head?
