EVE OF DISTRACTION (read time 1:29)
She wakes up before you do every morning, patiently waits for you to open your eyes, then softly whispers, “better check your emails...” She doesn’t say, turn over and hug your mate, she doesn’t remind you to brush your teeth and she doesn’t even suggest that you go in and wake the kids. The very first thing she whispers is, “perhaps there’s something new on Facebook you should see...” She’s compelling, alluring, informative, sexy, seductive, exotic, fun...and you actually believe she likes you!

I love your writings...what I have read resonates so much and is such enjoyable reading. Then today I hit this one! An explosion of "Oh My God" hit me hard. Just our addition to checking emails then getting sidetracked, is enough to lure us away for hours. Speaking of Sidetracked...gotta get back to my world!

Good piece... I like your writing... I think the Eve reference might be... dare I say... "Biblical"... as Eve represents distraction... evil... the wrong choice...

Good post. Wise words. Especially for musicians, whose daily life is the Hell of Never Making It. I've seen SO MANY great players fall by the wayside because they "gave up/got smart" (depending on who they are talking to. These possible shining stars with the potential to bring modern music out of the doldrums might have made a real difference if only they would have kept at it. And even if they didn't, they would have been doing what they love instead of chasing the Almighty Dollar.

Have you been evesdropping on me ( and her) the last three weeks. You described her to a T. uncanny.
