The Hardest Video I've Had To Make

This video is dedicated to my biggest musical influence Aunt Penny.

  • I've been around a long time, and you know, when you've been around a long time, you see people who are older , and they've survived this very complicated life that we've all been given, to figure out what are we to do with it? We have these children, we have this home, we have this relationship, we have all this stuff, it comes and goes like waves . Sometimes its okay, sometimes its horrible , and that will never change. how you react to it, is what makes the difference . Let's not all get hysterical when the dog won't stop barking. We all have to take turns barking. We all need to bark, and this happens to be the day that your dog is barking. Something is bugging him and he's barking, and until we figure out what it is, he's going to bark . We all need to do that. Don't be afraid to bark. It's good to bark. It's good for your soul. Then we have to sit back, take a deep breath, drink plenty of water , and not get too upset with the every day stuff , because it can make you sick if you let it . Go with the tide, ride with the tide, go with the flow Thank you Aunt Penny.

    • Aunt Penny seems like a cool hip woman. May she Rest In Peace. My aunt Dawn was the same way we were close and she was a musical influence to me. She played piano and she plays the harp. She was an amazing woman as was your aunt Penny. Keep your head up she seems like she live a full life and a beautiful one my brother.

    • I am so glad Greg transcribed that portion. I had not heard the poetry, but it really was. It's beautiful that such poetic philosophy was so casually and humbly dispensed. You were so blessed to have your Aunt Penny in your childhood, Rick. RIP happily, hysterically, hilariously, barking aunt Penny!

  • This is a really lovely tribute, Rick. Penny was very clearly a wonderful woman and she persists through her relationship with you, your family, and with her students.

  • She was obviously like a mom to you. So sorry for your loss Rick. It was quite obvious how much you loved her and how proud you were of her. Think of her life with you as a gift that very few people ever get to experience. Take care.

  • Condolences for your loss, Ric. I hope you and all your family are well. Beautiful and touching tribute. I love the line "we all gotta bark sometime" and that's a nugget of wisdom right there. Everyday stuff does suck, and music brings us all through it. 🤘

  • Man I knew I was going to cry after I saw you two sitting together talking. She was a very wise woman. There are some words to live by in there. So sorry for youe loss Rick. FYI - for the folks who didn't get the stamps for food part, they rationed almost everything in WWII to support the war effort. My grandmother told me so many stories about that time and when I get down about what's going on in the world now I think about what it must have been like for people back in those years.
