Thanks to @totement for making this video of @irawolfmusic and me playing one of our favorite tunes by @gillianwelchofficial - Hard Times. This song has become a mantra for us while traveling around the country in an old van together. It is a great reminder to stay happy and enjoy as much of every moment as possible. Enjoy

one of the kindest souls to ever draw breath, my paw paw, Nick Kepley. he used to play his pre-war Gibson banjo on the radio, and now his most treasured possession has become a sacred relic of sorts. a way for me and mine to commune with him, to sit with his spirit and feel his presence in our lives. he has been coming up a lot lately. in conversations with family and friends both old and new. i think he’s coming through as a support in difficult times. he survived many hardships, including the Great Depression, WWII as a P.O.W in Japan, and many health issues later in life, but he always held space for us, especially his girls. his was unconditional love. i will never forget the ride to school each morning, he would humor my whimsical nature, whistling a lively tune the whole way with me. he is the reason why i sing silly songs made up on the fly, and why my heart breaks every time i listen to bluegrass, and why i love turnip greens with the little bits of turnip cut up in and cooked to death. i love you paw paw. thank you for choosing the life you did. thank you for being a part of me. #love#pawpaw#banjo#grateful#family#ancestors#ancestralhealing#ancestralknowledge#joy#musician

Well see what you want to see. You should see it all. Well take what you want from me. You deserve it all. Nine times out of ten our hearts just get dissolved *get dissolved. Well I want a better place, or just a better way to fall.
But one time out of ten, everything is perfect for us all. Well I want a better place, or just a better way to fall #bukowski#modestmouse 💜🐭 #herewego#imasuckerforbanjos#banjo
