In My Memoir Welcome To My World
As I was about to finish my my memoir I wrote this
As I look back at this manuscript, a couple of things strike me: if you don’t believe in God, you may see so much of my life as a series of coincidences, but as I look at it, I see the loving hand of God the Father directing my path, and that I should have been thankful my entire life for all the good things God has given to me.because of that feeling I wrote Be Thankful for What You’ve Got.
It strikes me as I look back upon these pages, how my life’s script is atypical of a rock and roller or a Christian for that matter. The typical story of a rocker would be: I had bad management, toured, got burned out and had a bad record deal – not, I published my own music, played locally, and taught guitar.
Og Mandino in his great book, The Greatest Miracle in the World, urges us to proclaim our rarity. That's what a memoir is, telling your unique story. I guess what Andy Warhol said was true, “Thank you for my fifteen minutes of fame.”
