The Truth About Idols, Icons And Over Achievers

 December 27, 2020

   I had a curious dream last night that ended with these two maxims: All you need is love and let it be. I know it's a flippin' cliche but are there two more wonderful and powerful messages for our time? And both songs were penned by two disparate individuals who wrote some other great stuff together—and apart!

"I am a great believer in dreams. I'm a great rememberer of dreams."

—Paul McCartney, admitting that both "Yesterday" and "Eleonor Rigby" came to him in separate dreams

Covid Contrails In The Sunset

   My neighbor Tom insists these contrail clouds from last night's sunset are from the jets delivering Covid vaccines across the country.

   Still noodling cover concepts for a certain legendary lawman.

Daily Scratchboard Whip Out:
"Bass With Rifle"

   So far, everybody is doing him wrong. The way to make Bass Reeves connect with the wider audience he deserves is to go into the teeth of racism. So far, everyone has done it PC and it is just too flat and too safe. The truth is deeper, more complicated, just as he was. Make him human, show the controversy of the Indian Nations. 

"The superheroes you have in your mind (idols, icons, titans, billionaires, etc.) are nearly all walking flaws who’ve maximized 1 or 2 strengths. Humans are imperfect creatures. You don’t 'succeed' because you have no weaknesses; you succeed because you find your unique strengths and focus on developing habits around them."
—Tim Ferriss
