Early this morning I was contemplating the week and what Independence Day means, and it got me thinking. We may all have different viewpoints, but that’s one of the things that makes this country so great. I think people tend to forget that from time to time. I’d like to think that there is still a collective spirit of helping one another. That, combined with some songwriting ways of thinking about words brought me to the homonym of “independence” and “independents”. That brought to thinking of a concept to do a daily post all this week called “Celebrate INDEPENDENTS Week.” WOW. Wasn’t sure how I was going to start, but when I saw this article, I knew it was just the right way. MARTIN GUITAR, a creative company with heart, donates guitars to troops overseas. Here’s the article.

Thank you Martin Guitar.

Let’s celebrate INDEPENDENCE with INDEPENDENTS. Please support independent businesses doing great work. Drop me a line if YOU know of or are a great business like this. And Happy 4th of July to all.
