Tag Archives: Miniseries

Not Yet

The last installment of the Blinds miniseries comes

from the last song of the album.

No matter what your beliefs are on life, death,

spirituality, etc., we all want peace. We all want

harmony in our lives. We long to be loved, we long

for justice, and we long for wholeness. Basically,

we long for everything that’s wrong to be made right.

Piano Tuner

The miniseries is coming to a close. This is one of the

last entries. This song was inspired during a piano tuning.

I watch for quite some time as the tuner carefully did his

work. It was mundane, and at the same time beautiful. I

watched and listened as the man loosened and tightened

every string meticulously in order to bring them back to their

original state and sound.

I Have Longed

The end is drawing near on the Blinds miniseries,

but it has been fun to shed some light, even if it’s

only a candles-worth, on these songs. This is

inspired by the song For a Place. I believe it was

the first song I wrote once I moved to Indy. I had

no plans to leave Bloomington, but the good that

has come from it is unexplainable. For one thing,

I have a wife now. I think moving was the right decision.

Concrete

I was driving home to Indy from my hometown,

when the first spark flew. As I merged to one of

the exits, I saw the criss-crossing interstates at

a favorable angle. The imagery was reminiscent

of spiderwebs, which was the inspiration for the

first verse of Concrete.

This photo isn’t a photo of what I saw, but

somewhat paints the picture I wanted to paint

with my words.

Four Panes

The sixth installment of the miniseries is a little

different than the past few. I didn’t do this painting,

but it was the inspiration for the song, Four Panes.

My friend Nathan sent me a link to a Pinterest board

full of art, and I chose this one. It was probably the

least likely to be used. I mean look at it. It’s a painting

of old window panes. The painting and I had a staring

contest, and honestly, I think I won because I got what

I wanted from it. A song. As my mind went blank from

staring too long, it began to fill with a story. One that

was partially inspired by the home I grew up in, and

partially a made up tale. Even the made up parts

held truth within my own heart though. Four Panes

is one of my personal favorites from the album.

I’m on a Boat

I think this is the fifth installment of the miniseries.

I’m starting to lose track. This is taken from the

second verse of Foulest Fleet from Blinds.

Naughty Nautical!

Habit

Here is the fourth installment in the miniseries. I never

intended to create a miniseries, but that’s kind of what

has happened. This is taken from the first verse of Habit

from Blinds. Enjoy.
