Woode Wood: Live Music Guy


Don't know if anyone remembers my 1st post on 12-31-06 but I wrote about taking a walk around Town Lake and seeing "Live Music Guy" and how it made my day. Well Sunday morning, I decided to have a bit of a creative morning...I walked down to the Austin Java coffee shop...took my poetry book that I write in...and polished up 3 poems I had been writing while drinking my fav coffee there: Caramel Knowledge. :) I took off for Town Lake with my camera in hand...taking some pics of ducks and all...when I heard the music again!! I got up to the point where the guy was playing and started taking the best pics...of him singing and talking to all who walked/ran/biked by. I finally got a moment to speak with him...apparently Woode Wood does this every day. He comes to Town Lake and sings...not expecting anyone to do anything. He plays at various venues around town but does this for pleasure for others.
Well it made the rest of my day so nice...I just had to pass that along to all of you. I put his link here for all who'd like to check him out.

Hi Tex: I remember reading that day: you sounded like he had just made your whole week! I miss alot of stuff like that having small children, when all you feel like you have time to do is chase them from piller to post.

I'm really glad you take the time to be in the world around you, and get joy out of little things like Woode Wood.

Hope your day has been better today than the days before it.

Hey Tex this might be my first time to comment on your blog! I liked the story But it was Woodie that made me write.I even went to his site. Music and guitars make me stop.Sometimes you feel like you would like to stop and take that kinda risk and just play regardless of who listens.

Woode is an awesome guy...he plays gigs around Austin...of course he brings his stuff out there to promote himself...but expects not a penny...watching him make others smile...made me smile.

//Ok Tex I've been reading just hadn't posted you a note yet.Its neat you have that many close friends with the same interest. AS you get older the number of people that you say are close friends tends to dwendle.//

Scott, exhibit A from Tex's March 15th post with the picture of her and all her friends at Spring Training. Proof that it is you is you spelled dwindle "dwendle".

Senility rears it's ugly head.
