There are many ways to find happiness in this life, some more lasting than others. Personally, the most satisfying way I've found is to lose myself in music. That moment when you find the exact word to sing over the exact chord to express what you're feeling. The look on someone's face when they've truly enjoyed a song you've written. There's nothing like it.

You could say I've taken the road less traveled. I've opened for Keller Williams in front of a few thousand students at Colby College in Maine, played all up and down the west coast, and as far as I know I've been the only medic in the Army to complete a Chinese fire drill around a HMMWV parked on the bridge leading in to Sadr City in Baghdad. (Writing that down makes it seem even more offensive and stupid than it was.)

Music for me is therapy that other people actually want to hear. When I reach that familiar breaking point, I hole myself up in my room and just play. Songwriting takes this huge, confusing world and condenses it in to a handful of beautiful thoughts, and somehow that is enough. Looking back, all I ever really wanted to was connect with people and to that end I've been a success. Who knows where we go from here.

    Stephen Covell's "Tunes Attack" on Wave Street Studios last night was a sell-out, standing room only, and the audience's only disappointment was that they couldn't keep him for hours and hours. http://www.marilynch.com/blog Jun 08
