A New Song

video

So, this is what I've been doing for the last 5 months. I mentioned in my last post that I was working with some talented musicians, well we have a name for our group now and our first recorded song. The name of the song , "Restless Dreams", the name of the group, "Soul Reviver".

But to me it's really not about the music as much as it is about the friendships that have developed in the group, Dennis Perry on Bass, Dale Kostyk on Drums and did the mixdown on the song, and our fearless leader, singer, songwriter Guitarist Ed Saraka, the man who got it all started last July. I've known Ed for some 25 years and when he gave me the call to join the project I thought Ed's involved, gonna be good. The call came at a point in my life when I was wondering what to do next, my life hadn't turned out quite the way I planned, maybe joining a rock and roll group will make it all better, hey God does work in mysterious ways.

Restless Dreams was written at a turning point in my life, you know when you come to a point in your life when you realize you've made mistakes and look within yourself and find there is nothing you can do, or anyone else for that matter, so you make a choice, look to a higher power, ie God and realize crap I should have done this a long time ago, God forgives you, you forgive yourself (the hardest part) and move on, the end. But not really the end, always doubts, we are after all only human, that's why it's nice to have God 24/7 to pull us back into line again when we doubt about our self worth, our purpose.

As far as Blackholes and astrostuff look for more posts, if only as Anna suggested the odd image or so.

Anna said...

Bob I thought I will never hear from you. This is great song, and theme, and like you said encouragement - well done to all of you. Love your attitude too. Oh my my its been a long time....Thanks for the visit too and the link (I said that, lol)! Anna :)

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Shinade eventually will be putting out a cd, get one out to you when we do. I'll have to get over to look at your Moon shot.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Anna, time to get back into blogging, visit some old friends and fellow Moon lovers.

Shinade said...

wow, it's so good to see you getting active again. you are one of my favorite blogs and everyone really misses you.

Thanks for dropping by. I dropped and dropped yesterday to try to get you more hits. But, everyone here in the states is Christmas shopping this weekend. 'Black Friday Weekend'...sales and more sales!

Now if you get a chance please pop back over and look at my moon shot. I finally figured out how to set my camera with my 1500 mm to get a decent picture. I was thrilled.

No worries...just if you have time! I hope you have a great day!
Jackie:-)

Stephanie Barr said...

Nice, Bob! There is nothing like working through challenges using a creative outlet. Even better when the results are something to be proud of.

Good for you!

We missed you, Bob.

(BTW, I wrote a sequel to that novel I sent you if you're interested stephanieebarr at earthlink dot net)

FishHawk said...

Wow, that is an incredible song! I am glad you are starting to know some peace now, and I hope it lasts.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Shinade, saw your Moon shot this morning, very cool indeed, great job

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Stephanie, can you send me an exact link? the one I followed takes me to an old post of yours. Loved the first one so much, have it printed down and in a binder.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks FishHawk, that's where faith and grace come.

Roger said...

I cant get the player to play, I was looking forward to that, drat. It says to try again later so that's what I will do.

Thanks for leaving your comment Bob I am getting back into blogging now that work has slowed down.

Talk to you soon!

Bob Johnson said...

Hey Roger good to see you're back as well, great stories and pics.

Stephanie Barr said...

Astro-Nuts said...

Good job Bob. I'm truly blessed to call you a great friend. I'm already looking forward to the CD.

Bob Johnson said...

Hey Stephanie, still no luck just takes me to the earthlink site and says I don't need authentication :(

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Colin and right back at ya buddy.

Stephanie Barr said...

Bob, it's an email address. If you remind me of what your email is, I'll send you a pdf of the new book.

Bob Johnson said...

Ha,Duh..sure.

Stephanie Barr said...

No problem, Bob. I wish I had a nickel for every time I face-palmed myself for doing something boneheaded. There's no idiot thing out there I probably haven't done at least once. I should have been clear it wasn't on-line.

Some days, the obvious just laughs at us. Or maybe that's just me.

Shinade said...

Your new song and incredible video is now playing as my pick for Music Monday.

Jackie:-)

Kimmy said...

When I first saw your site months ago, I was drawn to it daily. There is a peace within that I cannot describe. Shinade posted your video, and I was truly touched. It is uplifting and exactly what I needed. The positive energy that you share with us, inspire me to go about the day to day with a smile.

Bob Johnson said...

Awesome Kimmy, thanks for sharing that.

Lynda Lehmann said...

It's a great song and sound, Bob, though I'll have to come back and listen when I can turn the volume higher. (Hubby is sleeping, lol...)

So you have been branching out and finding new parts of yourself and having a GREAT time. It's wonderful! And you don't need to look back: what's done is done.

Great to see you here, back on your blog! I'm with Anna, even short posts will do!

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks Lynda, the past is something you have to learn from and realize it's done like you said, hopefully we learn and grow from it. There will be more posts, more songs, images and links, mostly short..but something. Thanks for dropping by.

Nature Nut /JJ Loch said...

I want that CD!!!

What a great come back, Bob!!!

WOOT!!!

You are soooo talented. If I was standing next to you, you would be feeling a big {{{HUG}}}.

The best to you! I couldn't have a better friend.

On my wish list...go see Bob's band in action!

Hugs, JJ

Bob Johnson said...

Hey JJ, thanks, and thanks for the hug, I will definitely make sure I send you a cd when they're out, good to hear from you.

SWUBIRD said...

Bob:

Fantastic! I love your music. My brother in law also plays in a group and their stuff sounds similar to yours. I could swear I was listening to Pink Floyd.

Black Holes and Stuff just keeps on rockin.

Happy trails.

Bob Johnson said...

Thanks SWUBIRD, good to see you around.

AngelBaby said...
