Not All Who Wander Are Lost 

I've been accused - and rightly so - of not having a clearly defined life path. It's true. And while I used to envy (somewhat) those friends of mine who seemed to know  at a very young age exactly what they wanted to do I came to accept the fact that I was wired differently. I have been fortunate (to my mind, at least) to have worn many different hats. And I'd like to think that I've learned from and grown personally from each unique experience. 

Here's to you all who drift a bit with the stream, who take the tortuous path not well-trod, who seek because the very act of seeking compels and satisfies some ineffable thing inside you. 

Lyrics from a new tune in the works:

I am one among many - not all who wander are lost 
I am one among many - not all who wander are lost 

I’m a priest, I’m a pagan, I’m a poet, I’m a thief 
I’m a judge, I’m an outlaw, I’m a loafer, I’m a slaver    
I’m a witness, I’m a doer, I’m a dilettante, I’m a pro 
I’m a sponge, I’m a sieve, I’m a saint and a misbehaver

I am one among many - not all who wander are lost 
I am one among many - not all who wander are lost 

I’m astute, I’m dim, I’m sensitive, I’m callous 
I’m a finder, I’m a seeker, I’m a father, I’m a son 
I’m a pillar, I’m a liar, I’m a sage, I’m a fool 
I’m a singer, I’m a screamer, I’m a clown, but mostly

I am one among many - not all who wander are lost 

We here at the House Of Strays wish you a pleasant week of following your path however circuitous - wherever it may lead.

And here's a tune from my most recent CD Road Of Man: Everybody's Just A Heartbeat Away
