“Manage the Temptation to Publish Yourself”

“I remember playing the guitar through the amplifier facing out the window of my house onto the street in the summer time – that was social media in 1992.”

A great read to see inside the mind of what I think is one the the best guitarist and artists around today. I think it shows just how much of himself he puts into his art and how much thought goes into anything that could have any effect on it.

I totally agree and have felt the narrowing of mental capacity. A while back I realized that most of my thoughts were getting very short and my mind was jumping around all the time. Part of the reason I haven’t been on Twitter as much and why I’m focusing on reading more, writing more and putting more into podcasting. It’s all an effort to expand thoughts.

(Funny that I cut down the title to that right before I hit a button that says “Publish”!!)
