Vance’sMondayNightAcousticPajamaParty#53 - MYXED BAG

My stuff, other folk’s stuff, why I wrote this song or cover that song chat, some requests, maybe even a poem, some quiet. I’m full service me.


When: Monday Nite, March 22nd 7:30PM EDT (“doors” open at 7 for community hang) -

Who gets 10%: (Massachusetts Organization for Addiction Recovery)

I’ve never had a drink. Never smoked or snorted anything.
But I come from an at-home history of alcoholism and violence. So I know.
This place’s mission is "to organize recovering individuals, families, and friends
into a collective voice to educate the public about the value of recovery from alcohol and other addictions.”
OK, I’m in with 10% of whatever I make this trip.

$$: or or
a check to VanceFunder P.O. Box 17,
Arlington, MA 02476 for this web-groovery.
Pay or not. Up to you. Let’s stay connected.

This week’s pajamas: all grey. That’s what’s clean.

I coach stuff.

Good Good Man - the CD - streaming all over, even get a CD from me…



When one note will do.

When a single line needs
no shading.

When the speech is short
and solo well-placed words
know the audience is there.

When the page goes unfilled
risking wasted paper.

As the wind-up is shortened
and the follow-through everything.

As the listener is purposely
taken for granted and trusted.

When the distance between
start and finish
isn’t measured at all.

When the choice between
muscle and skin
is bone.

When uncertain is the question
and unknown is the answer.

Then one note will do.
