The number of Weird Folk in the world is one less today than it was last week. For anonymity’s sake, let’s call him Bill. You probably didn’t know him, he wasn’t a very vocal part of the community. He appreciated my music and I appreciated him. His dog was named Jack. He liked to send me pictures of his dog. He would often ask me how to play one of my songs. I would record a video demonstrating how to play the requested tune. Then he would ask, “how would a beginner play that?” He was a good human and I will miss him. He took his own life last Sunday. His family reached out and I’m going to remotely be a part of his funeral. It might be the hardest thing that I do for a long time. Life’s hard, please don’t give up.
