Doors of Opportunity

 In the last couple years I have seen how opportunity presents itself. Opportunity first presents itself as a result of desire. If I have no desire to seek out new and different outcomes, how could anything be a true opportunity? The desire to find opportunity is a desire to learn and grow. Opportunity is the door to greatness and therefor presents itself as a door.

Different Doors

There are many different types of doors. The status of the doors of opportunity is always variable to timing and “fit”. Many doors are open and have been open for quite some time. Some doors are closed and just need to be opened. Other times, the doors remain locked and can’t be unlocked until the timing is right. Some doors are opened and for whatever reason we find that it may not have been the right door. Then there are the “new” doors, or doors that have just been unlocked or opened a crack. These doors are the doors of opportunity

 Follow the Doors

The doors of opportunity open up rooms of adventure and excitement. If you seize the opportunity, these doors will open and unlock new doors. A life blessed with opportunity doesn’t end with a room. There is always a door around the corner. All you have to do is open it. Follow the doors.

Let You

I have been in Springfield, Missouri, for the last two days. The Purpose of my visit has mainly been to coordinate with the city to make sure we are all on the same page. I have really enjoyed my experience and have learned a great deal in relation to working with the city and local governments. Amidst the work and responsibilities I have here, I also find space for music and down time. Sometimes this just happens at 3:00am when I can’t sleep, or just get so caught up in writing a song that I just keep on going. This song is a product of that.

This song is titled Let You. I created the basic structure of this song back in high school but at the time was unable to create a full and complete version. Maybe it wasn’t really incomplete,  just before its time. Sometimes I look back at my youth and think, “Man, I had some pretty good ideas.” The truth is, I was just a goofy teenager. Its amazing to me to see how the roots I planted and the gifts I have given have truly developed over the years. Sometimes, when we are completely satisfied with our work we just need to give it some time and we will find that the result you were looking for will unveil itself in the future.

It is amazing what you can do with a tiny keyboard and built in microphone.



They say it comes and goes
But no one even knows
The feelings deep inside your heart
One day you seem to glow
The next you’re down below
So tell me why is love so hard
Love is not perfect, but brother it’s worth it
My hearts about to break
From every small mistake
Until I see how much I’ve grown
I’m happy and I’m strong
And soon I will belong
I’m sure one day I’ll find a home
Love is not perfect, but brother it’s worth it
I was scared and lost until the moment that I saw your face
Then you filled my soul and turned my world into a wondrous place
Love we have come so far
Love don’t forget who you are
A penny and a note
Which both of them had wrote
A funny way for it to start
A boy behind a boat can finally stay afloat
When love fills up his longing heart.
Love is not perfect, but brother it’s worth it
Behind all the hurtin’, it’s good and its certain
To right all the wrongs
And make you feel that you belong.

Experience Johnny

While I fail to express myself in word or thought there is a world of color that defines the essence of my being. Life is an experience, what we choose to experience. I would like to share my experiences with I have found to be some of life’s greatest gifts: the gift of art, the gift of music, the gift of knowledge, the gift of friendship, the gift of belief, and the gift of experience.
