Hmph , the Blog … told ya he was complicated.
But then we are all complicated. Except that we don’t often self-examine (shame) and this poor guy had been put under the microscope, stethoscope, “biggering”, and what-have-you’s, non-stop for as long as the past 8 years and expectations for his explanations had been always clamouringly high. Me too sometimes guilty.
As much as I crave his blogs to clarify his movements/silences/non-movements etc etc, I sometimes wished he would just SING … but then, I’m just incorrigibly greedy and that story will need to be told in another blog, so for the time being, we’ll just stick to the matter at hand. ;)
I feel a pain in David’s current blog. Surprise surprise. I don’t mean an ugly self-indulgent pain – that is not David. But a beautiful pain brought about by a deep joy embracing great integrity, as if he has so much to impart … so much to give … yet he feels he cannot do it all. His passions are inward flowing. You do not see it (because he is too pretty and you get distracted by his looks! ;) ) But you feel it. He has so much of “depth of heart”. Is he more of a Heart or is he more of a Voice? I guess both. Hm … not telling it intelligibly, am I? Nevermind, let’s move on … :D
The basic fact is he actually wrote a blog, which is a Blessing of all blessings to us half-starved Archies, tongues hanging out in exasperation. We shouldn’t care what he talked about – immaterial – he still wants to connect with us!! But talking about the all-significant subject of BALANCE is definitely a bonus!!
Balance in the Universe … right up my alley! Life is all about Balance: Light and Dark … Highs and Lows … Hope and Despair … we won’t feel one without the other. Mark Twain is known to have said: “What is Joy without Sorrow? What is Success without Failure?”
David’s blog has been evident that he has found the Balance he needs to deal with the conflicting aspects in his life.
The most significant and relevant to us Archies, is – “I don’t intend on giving up” Phew!! and PHEW! again.
He also says: ” It’s hard to keep that focus.” (What’s new, David?”) On the one hand, David is so grounded. On the other, he tends to be rather flighty. I’m certainly glad he has found a more balanced state of mind and a true balance in his choices.
The bottom-line is he is “not interested in being the hippiest, biggest or the greatest”. Me and my Archie-mates have long wondered how “Big” he wants to be in his career. He has now given us the answer – in black and white, no less. Well, David, you don’t have to be whatever you are reluctant to be. We already think you are the Greatest! So there, no sweat haha! :)
So why are we posting this old pic??
I guess it’s our Archu-duty to tell David that part of his Balance is he is still a beautiful rockstar whom many people look up to for inspiration and entertainment … so what is he going to do about it??? :x :x
David also says in his blog that he is continuously working and looking for producers at the moment. There we go – Balance almost achieved!! :D :D
Ah … one more thing: Harmony in Music is also a Balance. So, GO DAVID!! :)
