Why we must confront hard historical truths
"Not that long ago I received an invitation to spend a few days at the historic. Of James Madison. James Madison of course was the fourth president of the United States, the father of the constitution, the architect of the bill of rights and as a historian I was really excited. To go to this historic site because I understand and appreciate the power of place. Now, Madison called his estate monpellier and mom Pelia is absolutely beautiful is several thousand acres. Rolling Hills farmland forest with absolutely breathtaking views of the blue. Ridge. Mountains but it's a haunting beauty. because. Montpellier was also a slave labor camp. You see James Madison slave more than one hundred people over the course of his lifetime. And he never a single soul, not even upon his death. The centerpiece of Montpellier is Madison's matching. This is where James Madison grew up. This is where he returned to after his presidency. This is where he eventually died and the centerpiece of Madison's mansion is his library this room on the second floor where Madison conceived and conceptualized the bill of rights when I visited for the first time, the director of Education Christian coats. Cool. Why do took me almost immediately to the library. And it was amazing being able to stand in this place where such an important moment in. American history happened. But then after a little while they're Christian actually took me downstairs to the sellers of the. Mansion. Now in the sellers of the mansion, that's where the enslaved African Americans who manage the House spent most of their time. It's also where they were installing a new exhibition on slavery in America. and. While we were there Christian instructed me to do something I thought it was a little bit strange. He told me to take my hand and place it on the brick walls of the seller and slide it along until I felt these impressions or ridges in the face of the brick. Now Look I was going to be staying on site on his former slave plantation for a couple of days. So I wasn't trying to upset any white people. Because when this was over, I want make sure that I could get out. But as I'm actually sliding my hand along the seller war, I couldn't help but think about my daughters and my youngest one in particular who was only about two or three years old at the time because every time she hot out of our car, she would take her hand and slide it along the outside, which is absolutely disgusting and then. And if I couldn't get to her in time, she would take her fingers and pop them in the mouth which drive. Absolutely crazy. So this is what I'm thinking about what I'm supposed to be a historian. But then, but then I actually do feel these impressions in the brick I feel these ridges in the brick and it takes a second to realize what they are, what they are are tiny handprints. Because all the bricks at James Madison's estate were made by the children that he enslaved. And that's when it hit me. That The library in which. James Madison conceived and conceptualizes the bill of rights rests on a foundation of bricks. Made by the children that he enslaved. And? This. Is. Hard. History. It's hard history because it's difficult to imagine the kind of inhumanity. That leads one to enslave children to make bricks. Your comfort and convenience is hard history because it's hard to talk about the violence of slavery. The beatings, the whippings, the kidnappings, the forced family separations is hard history because it's hard to teach white supremacy. Which is the ideology that justified slavery. And so rather than confront hard history. We tend to avoid it. Now sometimes that means just. Stuff up. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say that states rights was the primary cause of the civil war. That would actually come as a surprise. So the people who fought in the civil war. Sometimes. We try to rationalize hard history. When people visit Montpellier and by people in this instance, white people. When they visit mom appeal your and learn about Madison slaving people. They often ask. But wasn't he a good master? A good master. There is no such thing as a good master. There is only worse and worse her. And sometimes. We just pretend the past didn't happen. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say it's hard to imagine slavery existing outside of the plantation south no, it ain't. Slavery existed in every American colony slavery existed in my home state of New York for fifty years after the American revolution. Why do we do this? Why do we avoid confronting hard history? Literary performer and Educator Reggie. Gibson had the truth of it when he said that our problem as Americans. Is We actually hate history. What we love Is No style.

"I know on captain obvious here it's gotTa. Get better. In these type of situations do you is each individual different or do you is a hitting instructor as the manager Chi to just let them work through it? How do you get through that because there's so much capabilities for them to get hot and we know we've seen that how do they get through this mentally doesn't grind on them in the postseason. Well it depends on the team and it depends on the individual. Some guys responded to Raas speeches. Some guys are just professionals and they go out there and they work their way through. Guys are very mechanical and they watch a lot of video and they tried to work their way out of it. That way some guys just know that hang comes and goes and it's it's really hard to hit the major leagues and we are doing our best not to overreact to. Pretty pretty deep slump over the past week or so. But at the same time knowing that we have to get this thing back on track and we don't have that much time to do it, and so how we do that is is a really good challenge for Smith. Are hitting coaches and and for a hitters But these these guys are professionals I. Saw this lineup to do everybody what this lineup can do when it is really clicking on all cylinders and the question is, how do we get back there as quick Baseba-? And James I know nobody likes to hear this when a team loses. I find sometimes when in my former profession as a quarterback that sometimes watching players at times go through struggles. Reveals them and that they become, it's better for you don't want to last long in a playoff series but there are times there's sometimes nothing wrong with struggled a little bit as long as the timing of getting hot comes at the right time. Correct. Oh certainly I mean we talk all the time and his game not even just about the major league is but. About prospects and young kids and kids at your drafting and most people that I will talk to you in this game around these kids talk about how important is to see how they react to failure. Most of these guys were the best player on every team. They've ever been on up until they get into professional baseball and you just don't know how these guys will react when when things aren't going their way because they've always gone their way. It's the same thing for for people in front office and coaches where when it is not game. Time. When it is not emotional when it is not charged, it's very back and say you're GONNA do X. Y., z., and then when it's tight when it's the eighth inning when it's a one run game when maybe the pitcher that you'd.

She is easily one of the best rally drivers ever. She's a beast. So I'm really stoked that we can tell the story even if it took us a little while to get to it, that's on us but but it's interesting because motorsport is really one of the sports where women and men compete against each other as true like she's not the best.

For it to be separated by gender in in Motor Sport Really of course right now there's the there's the W. series, which is a like a women's open-wheel series. At I think that's more for them to kind of get exposure and it proved themselves in like a formula car but I'm looking forward to seeing some of those drivers come up in the formula. One.

Don't really think about how. How far they words are reaching the clever ones that some of the evil ones do. They figured it out, you know. But. Look. The problem is that if you want to change society your words. Your deeds have got to reach deep into the bowels into the guts of whatever organization is involved so that the producer of you know podcast fifty nine and the producer of CNN you know works that might night shifts in the produce of Fox News whoever? Is getting the message, so they don't. Follow the crowd and just do the same story that the other guy did. I mean that's really the problem I mean it's very unusual for me to get ask these kinds of questions that you're asking because a lot of the people who create the news or who follow the news I just don't do their homework. I've done many. Many not does hundreds of interviews oftentimes people just not prepared. Data's don't do the homework you know. When I was at Columbia one of the things that they've really been forced on us was they made us get ready for interviews? If you weren't ready for interviews and you brought your story back and it wasn't good. They descent you out. Made you do it again? Of course she didn't like it, but you did it. You know nowadays I you know I'm interview by doesn't does the journalists who oftentimes it just don't even do the homework I understand you don't have time to read the book Talk Understand, but you can tell a lot of monitoring the homework out in the real world you know in the you know with the with the fifteen minute bit with someone takes a bit a piece of Shit.

Is The you know they weren't enough of a sounded hitting it hard. I'll tell you something else. That was interesting. I was thinking about this yesterday. Since I'm blowing off so much steam, I don't know why. But there was A. Princess Di was killed. And was she died. She died in a car accident. They know and they will pictures of her. You know what really people were yelling and screaming about photographers took our picture and one of the photographer, said something I'll never forget. He said I went angle to take pictures of the civil war there and nobody bought them. He said people buying pictures of the Angolan war. The winning goal I would I would be shooting those pictures. They don't buy those pictures. These are the kinds of pictures they buy. So as much as we want. A Yellen ran screaming about Donald Trump and all that you know. Whatever else did you know we? We have problems with by you. Know the place. Of The militarization of Police Department the answer begins right at home with all of us. In know what do we do who we pay attention to? What do we? What do we support? Have we voted those kinds of questions? A lot of us. You know a moving in that direction break. I'm delighted about that. And, that's really doesn't have anything to. My generation is done. That's really coming from. Young People You know yeah now. I completely agree Adam inspired to see that and also agree that. He kind of comes full circle to. The beginning of conversation where you know so much of the of the answer is a return to understanding you know family. However, you define that in community, however, you define that and the roles that we all have and. You know the freedom that we had and the by actually stepping into a place of share responsibility, whether it's with your biological family or chosen family, your religious family, your local community, whatever it is and I feel like we're. I don't know if you're seeing the same thing, but I feel like we're seeing people start. To, look back at that and say we need to reexamine this and maybe a bit of a reclamation of that as more of like a governing part of life I. Agree I think that that's what we are seeing, and it's I never thought I'd live long enough to see it just like I thought I'd never live long enough to see someone like Donald. Trump became president or Barack Obama for that matter. I mean I'm happy. That this is how yes, this is awfully terrible. It's just very painful. and. What one of the things that that comes from being? You know a so-called Christian and being involved searches that you do understand that there are lots. There's lots that you can't control. But witnessing this makes me happy. Makes me feel like you know. God is still on the throne. because. These kids these young people. They don't have to do this and they're doing it and look. There's a lot of ragging this to it. But. It doesn't matter men the ship the someone has got the wheel. They and they are spinning the wheel and the ship is turning is not. You can't stop this kind of thing. It's kind of like the Vietnam War in the net little tiny island that just you really just couldn't be taken over I mean you can't stop it when people spirit of people is greater than anything. Is Greater Than Evil and it's doesn't need a lot of fuel to run. Evil and hatred is like a diesel engine that just gulps fuel. You have to just constantly poor.

"The link in the show notes. I'm fascinated that You mentioned earlier like big part of the process of writing is observing is learning to see and as. And is capturing. What makes you go back and if and if you have all these and sort of like constantly observing consolation capturing. What makes you know when? Something you've written down some. You've seen something you. You've observed. needs to be expanded on needs to actually turn into something bigger, or is it just a feeling? You just start building around it and it it. It tells you.

Because there are so many ingredients in that one small piece that you. You know you can. You can pretty much. Guarantee that you're going to be. Two, hundred fifty to three hundred pages and before. Before you know. Look I have plenty of books sitting around not planning, but enough story sitting around that have not been finished. And they haven't been finished because they just don't have the power. Of My. My respect and adoration of the characters and love for the story. and. It's not the wall that I'm able to push against in order to make the story happened there. And I guess really to make the story happening. I mean it's interesting. I feel like that wall has to be there. What you have to write, you know you have to have. You have to really want to let people know about. You want to tell him something. You want to share something with people that helps them. In your merchant, you just want to give away the goods. It's nice that people pay for, but you. You give it away if you could.

I'm fascinated by if somebody comes into a room with you what they're looking for what they think they're looking for what they think they need to actually step into this place of being a writer versus what you really feel matters. While the young right is that I need to nyu really wonderful people first of all I don't teach like honors classes. super-duper writers who are trying to be. You know rightfully super-duper publications or magazines I basically whoever signs up the first people sign up with it. Courses limit are the ones in the class, and then I just make them right. Make them write about themselves and I teach I mostly focused on structure. You know I mean because you can't really unless you can get time and place. Said sent it in your story. Nobody you just blogging. You know no matter how good you are as a writer in terms of. Like. How fashion on the Hundred Yard Dash, a book is a marathon. So you can run hundred yards and beat everybody else, but after hundred yards. I'm just GONNA. I'll be running backwards and I'll go leave you behind because you don't know how to do it. Structure so I talk about structure quite a bit and I make them write. A sentimental and make them right I. Don't talk that much. We little NICI. We read a little bit of Gary. Smith WHO'S A. Wonderful right who's worked for sports illustrated, but he didn't really write about. Sports wrote about life. And then we right, that's it you know and I hear their thoughts about things. But then we must be right about what they know. So I sent him everywhere. Send them all over the city. Send him the seven to get ice cream and cake on some of the Bronx sent him to go see with the said. We're Abbas field was go find a joke. Go get a hacker. Tell us what you see in the barber shop I make them do that. When. They're finished writing red ink, all of the pages of bloody, but the game young people you know they really are. I get a lot of inspiration from. My students at Nyu. Must, be interesting well I. Don't know if you're teaching summer classes days, but if when we come back in the fall, you know. Given the moment that this country is in right now when you step into a room of you know like. People from eighteen to twenty one years old, who really to right and and a big part of your? What you're asking them to do is go out into the world and observe and participate and understand how that comes into the classroom, the conversations in the writing with you. I only teach one course I barely have time to do that and I do it mostly because I just love the kids Manhattan. It gives me so much. Give me so much more than I. Could ever give them. When I think of young people in this country, you know when I think of these kids who meet at Nyu I'm encouraged and I'm inspired. All of this stuff that's been happening lately is just encouraging inspiring for me to witness. I'm delighted that so many young people have taken it upon themselves to to speak on behalf of people who cannot speak into try to write things at a time when so many of them are having such personal difficulty in in such deep personal challenges. Yeah, it's it's it is incredibly powerful to see what's going on and to see so many people rise up and step out and actually say things and acknowledged things and the especially when. People who feel drawn to to deeply observe and then turn that into language that somehow like what you said goes out into the world, and in some way effects, other people, the sort of a powerful place to be, but also a place where I I kind of I wonder if what the sense of responsibility that some people would feel in being the people who try and observe, and then turn that into language that goes into the world, and in some way, affects other people i. don't think that people who who do that sort of thing think that deeply.

"Mean. This takes all the fun out of life. The fact is when you create a novel. You're not creating it. You just following the people you you step into a world that. That's no longer yours and then you get a chance to see these people. Look the hard work is getting the characters to leap out the cup. Draw and start moving around. Once they start moving around. There's no work to be done other than your PGA ability as a craftsman to follow him or her as they go about their lives. True many of the paradigm, the sort of crude outlines of. Characters and plot design in digging King Kong a rooted in my life. Is boy up in a small baptist? Church in New York. But you know. I mean I didn't know these people I. Have you know organised like screw in the deacons. Might says they were proper people with that stuff going on, it's not something that I really was privy to. You know I've heard of it. You know but everybody he is of everything. You don't know what you here's true in a you. Hear rumors about this that and the other. What's important in Deacon King? Kong, and in any good story at least as far as I'm concerned. Is. that. If, the book is really good, you can tell. The writer really loves his or her character's. Rachel Kushner. Loves her characters. You know Lindsey Schreiber, who is probably I mean? I think she's kind of cynical. But she's talented. You know and you know I wish I'd written her books, but she loves her characters I I, don't. I don't agree with a cynicism, but she she understands so yeah, where the book comes from sure rooted in some of that. You know the life that my mother created this that makes sense. Yeah, it's an interesting question. Like why does why would anyone feel? Curious about. What leads somebody like the experience that led some one to create something that deeply moved them i. think my senses edge because we want to know the person better a in my case, you know. The color water was written because I simply didn't know what. But after I wrote it, I had a better idea. Deacon King Kong I really don't know what inspired me to write Honest to Jesus I. Just you know I just was laying in bed in this guy. Popped into my mind. You know, and because people I know. That who are part of the Church especially if you've Mayes, I'm sixty two I, remember back in the day when you know when you went to church. It wasn't like when you went to we went to judge wasn't like a Broadway show. You know like the band played. Now you go to church the big church. The band's playing the drums going. You know and it's all this phone. It's just like solve theater. Is is no real spiritual thing. The whole stereotype of the church. was they going? Jesus. Know people jumping around. That really wasn't how it was. How it was is that it was very quiet. And then some would stand up and they would talk. And then something else is supposed to happen, but someone else got up into his head, a word about something enduring the sick and shut in prayer lissome would stand ABS and don't forget to pray for him, and then he she would talk, and then they they might feel a song. They might start singing and everyone. Just it would strike your heart to and you would sing. And that was the most beautiful thing I used to see that when I was a boy at my mother, and when I saw that with her later on when she described going to churches, a young woman brokenhearted in May complete perfect sense. But you know you never knew where the spirit was coming from, and so the spirit of. The. You can analyze it, but it's like trying to analyze love. You love someone inexplicably great. It's like China described why Frank Sinatra was a great single. White Count Basie. Was One of the greatest bally's the world. He's just hear the music I get it. Yeah, it's so chain. They say that what the one word that I wrote down to myself after reading, it was just one word it was love, and that was the overwhelming feeling I got from it. You sure it was fun. It was like amazing characters like it felt like you were having a blast creating this like there was there was a spirit of joy that was finally three, but at the end of it like the overwhelming experience that I had was one of acceptance and love. Absolutely I mean I feel like Gabriel Garcia Marquez would use the solitude. He had a lot of fun. Until the end I don't know if he had funded. But I had a lot of fun writing this book and and the Good Labor. The GALORE was an escape for me because you know came when I was in the middle of a bribery. Very difficult divorce. My mother died and you know it was an escape for me to get away from you know. The difficulties of my life. King Kong was just. It was just the world I was so happy to be. Part of you know just it's a story that made me happy you know. And That's really kind of what it was. You have a friend of mine who writes who? Basically says he writes because there's something that needs to get out, but also because. Of the way something makes him feel while he's in the process of creation I'm curious whether you feel is at all. When you right whether something that's that's meaningful to you in like it while it's hard work, and and not all it is fun that there's a feeling of being alive when he's actually writing. That he feels, flows into an his palpable eventually, when somebody picks it up, reads or to it, I never thought of it that way as an artist. I, simply do what I can do best in. I can't imagine not writing when a living without words and without music, it would be very difficult for me. And I've been doing it so long now that I don't know how to live. I mean I walk around with the PAD in my pocket. Everywhere. And a pencil everywhere everywhere I go. And No matter what I'm even if I'm cutting the grass. Working with plant, so it doesn't matter wherever I have always have hundreds of notebooks. Laying around my house, really I just can't and I never go back to look at them. You know. I just have these ideas. I write down and I just get it, you know. But I, it's. You have to be a little bit obsessive compulsive when you're a writer..

"That's what did it. and. I I loved him. Use such a good person. And he died I was fourteen when he died. I realized that life is just going to happen. No matter what life will shove you forward. And I just decided. I really want to be journalists anymore. You know I saw a lot of people who really great, really great writers who were at the post post-summit talented people. Who are older than me? And you know how this solution they'd become. And I said I. Just don't want. You know I'd rather not happen to me. So I stepped away from it and then I you know. I collapsed into poverty, and I was broke for a long time, but I was happy. Though that's the thing you know. I remember one time. I was talking to a music publisher after I left. I was writing songs peddling my songs around, and he said to me. I said. Can you tell me what happens to a song when I sell it to you? And he got so mad because he wanted wanted. They offer me a deal to buy my songs outright. An, he got so mad he's. This is very sophisticated stuff. The new is very sophisticated stuff it's you're not really Cape Wednesday you just a song. Okay, so just write songs, and I'll make you deal and of course I. Didn't I didn't make a deal with the guy. Just listen, but you know ironically. You know I don't know six months before that I was standing in the White House would've notebook out. Listen Ronald Reagan Talk. Or Mrs Reagan I think it was Mrs Nancy Reagan and I said to myself. I'm sophisticated enough to learn this, but he just sees me as that. But I was I was humiliated, but I didn't say anything I just. I kept my thoughts myself and I just went back to work and eventually. It started to happen to make money writing songs. And I got a steady gig plan in a couple of bands and I was making it, you know. The. I guess the Journalism Bug had Kinda left you, but the writing bug definitely didn't 'cause. I guess it was that same window right when you're sort of. You're playing around full-time. You're torn when the BUG sneaks back into the to return to your mom story and and go a lot deeper into it. Wa always liked to write I always felt journalism was not creative enough to me. That's really the problem. It was just not Not that creative. So that so the color of water really gets written over a period of years when you're on the road and when you're playing music when you decide to go way deeper into this and. Which means going back to your mom, who as you shared was was pretty hesitant. The first time it was just an article and say I want to know a lot more I'm curious how she responded and how those conversations unfolded. Well. I, mean you know she she was? You know not cooperative, but she was you know. She had reached the point in her life where I could beat her down a little bit and say look you know I needed need to figure this out. You know and And there was something she needed to resolve for herself. That hadn't been worked out. I think. David Preston get my friend, my best friend, David Press got married. I guess who's in the eighties. And when he got married, she went to his wedding. She was really moved. By the whole ceremony, smashed the glass. They got married under the I. Forget what it's called. The SHUTT-. Yeah, yeah, and it was really nice. It was beautiful. It was a beautiful wedding, and she was really moved by that and she loved David and his wife you know because were good friends. And his wife Rondi helped my mother quite a bit Rondi by the way, just as a coincidence is the person who is behind that whole business of of you know the the the drug treatment centers in Philly with it with a allow jog offenders to get them free. Free, you know treatment. She's. She's been in the news quite a bit. She's really she's amazing person in any case I think that her the wedding between her David Kind of loosened historical. Change from my mother in terms of her life is Jewish girl growing up in the south. And and I was curious about it, and then of course we went and visited her friend that we went to. Suffolk and she began to open up some yeah, were you surprised along the way as she started opening up and sharing more were there? Were there things that really took you? By surprise, you didn't know I mean yeah, but you know. People Change. They evolve a main. She was she. She was not culturally wrapped. In a way that that kept her chain to. The notion of Judaism or She loved her mother. She felt tremendous guilt about leaving her mother by. And she never got over it to dying day. She never got over there. that she left him behind with her abusive screwed up. Father, who who supposedly call himself rabbi. I mean that's juicy shit for you know for the people to ponder, but the fact is people love their parents, and they do the best they can. And the woman many my mother did the best she could. With you know. She was really dealt half a six pack when she came to this country. Because Jews treated like pretty badly in the south, and in America in general. But the fact is that she took everything she could, and did the best she could with within the framework that existed for her. And the result was good mostly for her children. I don't know that my mother ever felt that she was that unique. I think she felt that she was just. She did what any mother who loves her? Children with do and that's the truth of it. Yeah, I'm fascinated also. Because her coming to New York coming to Harlem originally, and then starting church, and introducing you to it. Is so important in your most recent work you know. Dean King Kong though it's a novel, you know. Clearly it's it's just the whole thing is built around. You know a community, a church community at a local community that feels just powerfully informed by your own upbringing, and by you know probably a lot of elements and pieces of.

"I guess that happens early on. You're still in the journalism side of things for a chunkier, but then, but even when I was on the journalism side of things, I always played music. Yeah, I mean I was always taken offline Thursday Friday night and head to gig somewhere. You know I. I was always. Never kept music too far from those always practicing you know, and I did it on the down low I I didn't really talk about it too much. My colleagues want to think I wasn't dedicated to the job you know. What I did do never I. Sometime cells young writers. I would not be hanging around for dinner and coffee, and all the stuff wasting Time Gossiping about whether I would just after the work was done I would go home and I practice. And I find it with music was where have I was Boston DC. I would find out with a final. Who Musicians were who was playing? You know? Ironically. I'd learn more about local news and local events as as a musician I ever learned as a reporter. Nicotine, not truth because you know. When you're reporting you, you're you're stuck. You gotTA. You know you have to put quote. Unquote supposedly must put certain things. And when you when you're musician, you know kicking around you. Oh, you heard this honest checking. See drive the other side of town. It's not there and then yeah, while on this on a saxophone of it. You check him out his keyboard player. You WanNa meet, but he's. He lives over in the singer. She's her cousin just got arrested. You gotta go help her I. Mean you know the stuff that it happens when I was at the post? I remember. I wanted to do a story about the base- Baseball Scout and I saw Ben Bradlee who is the editor of the paper in the hallway. And I went up to you know he was a legend back then. He well, he should have been. And I said to me now WANNA. Go Sia, one of those starbucks baseball scout. He said well. He said, have you talked to Mary? Her dossier was my Yan and she said, go ahead and do it. Mary dollars like the best editor. At in my opinion, she should run the post, but in any case I said I said Mary said go ahead, so he said well, what are you waiting for? He said if I had he said he pointed to the news. He said if I could make everyone in this room. Get up and clear out of here. I would do it right now. He said the news is not here. It's out there. He pointed to the window. And So. That's really what it is. Today you know where we gather news is just. She's terrible. No local news nobody goes out to report while it's happening now. Yes, forced to do it now, but yeah I think we're seeing this just massive new or citizen journalism also sort of like everybody's got a device where the report what's happening in the smallest of the smallest place or or in all the places where? It an maybe a big outlet isn't GonNa send someone nothing wrong with the yeah, now completely agree I mean. I've heard you say something a couple of times in the past about your time they're also which is a journalist becomes cynics, which I'm kind of curious about. Well if you WANNA stay creative. You have to avoid the cynicism that journalism creates. because. John. False! You know it's. It's magnetized toward politics. They kind of go together some in some way they like three fingers of one hand, sweeping the other hand, and you shake hands. Okay with this. That sixteen is with the other forefingers God. Them caught carefully. Because of the cynicism in the blood, and the guts from the first fingers. For six things feed over to the rest of the fingers in your whole hand is bleeding and wounded, and you'll never be able to build a house. That's a horrible metaphor, but my point is that cynicism. is destructive in terms of creativity. And and creativity is what makes one of the things that makes America a very unique and very very great place. so creativity doesn't happen. When you picking a video game about thefts or some other bullshit. It just doesn't happen. Excuse me, it just doesn't happen. You WanNa stay creative. You should read books. Walk the earth. Otherwise never gonNA journalists by comparison do get out and do things, but the level of. Cynicism that you allow into your life as a journalist will. At some point. Simply. Would just pull water on your spark your creative spark. So you have to be careful and that that cynicism dozen happened that rather skepticism can roll in. That's fine. Skepticism is fog. But cynicism is thunder and lightning rain. You just you gotta move. You can move your way through fog and discover great things. When it's raining hard in. He's look shelter, and there goes your story goodbye. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense At some point, you end up. Moving entirely over after your time Washington, post you decide to go all in on the music side for a chunk of time. I'm curious was at a slow building of a feeling like this is the right move, or or was there a moment or event or happening that sort of triggered that decision? I can't remember I think.

"With us. It doesn't matter what you studying college. This matters that you think. Yeah tell me about it, but it's interesting because you I mean you at overland. You studied music music pretty, much. They are studied music and can quote communications. And I didn't use any of. Well I use it all actually. We had A. Was it last year we had Mitch Albom in the studio and I remember asking him I was like. We got we got talking about writing. Then we got talking about music and he's like man I gotTa. Tell you if I could choose one like I. Forget the writing thing I just would. It would have been music all the way if I could have been a rock star that would have been at. Well you know I think the music is for me personally I. Mean if you'd ask him. When I was twenty five I to said yeah, I wanted to just play jazz the rest of my life, but now I realize that what music did me is what I hope it does for my signs in for my little program running my church, and that is it prepares you for a life of labor and learning and enjoyment. I mean there's nothing more enjoyable than driving down the street and listening to. Sonny rollins or the doors or Beethoven, or or anything. That's beautiful. I mean you know. I was listening to hey. Jackson yes, I mean there's nothing more. Classical than enjoying the first. The highest art form of all which I think music is and so. I think the study it just gives you a great appreciation for for life, and for teamwork of a discipline for the things that are important that help. You do whatever you'd like to whatever you like to do I. Think you know most of the? Most of your great scientists and engineers and architects. Attorneys I. Mean a lot of them have great great experience with music and I think that's mute, so I see music is. You know. I could I could suppose could've gone on to just the life of being a musician, but that wasn't enough. Really because music shouldn't be your life, really life should be life Yeah I. Mean You mentioned The kids you're working with now? I guess a at the Church because that was pretty much. Your I mean the early days for you was really. I guess it was really just a big part of your family. Church music books sounds like you're introducting music side also was sort of A. The church needed people to play. That's true. Yeah, well, you know. We grew up in the church in the Baptist showed that we heard that kind of music growing up and we listened to it at home we didn't have you know I grew up in a time when you listen to records and you know, and you only had a certain number of record, so you listen to whatever was on the radio. And whatever wreckage you had at home and I think it gave you a wider Palette in terms of which you draw on later what I drawn later when I became a musician. because. you had to listen to what everybody else listen to also as opposed to listening to the kind of music that you thought you liked. So but yeah I grew up in. You know in the church when we always listen to music swung hard, you know. That sort of heavy. Hearts swing in one thousand nine hundred. Fifty Nine Thousand Six Gospel. That is really really one part of of the so-called African, American musical experience, but it's it's one of the most popular one of the most affecting and Swedish so. It always made music special to me. I I just can't imagine life without music. I I just can't imagine being a writer. Without having music is part of my. Vocabulary you know. Yeah, I almost wonder I mean when you go back and forth when you're working on something between playing composing and writing all the time. On. Do you feel like that likely? You can feel the sensibilities sort of the two interplay with each other. I don't know I. Just do it to keep from going crazy Ya. You, know you you. Only have so much gas in the tank. When you run these characters on the page with they're running your own on the page and you have to get up. You have to move around, but you don't want to go. It's a coffee shop and Start Gossiping with somebody about nothing, so you sit down the peons out. We're going to listen. I mean writing a music she had this. They are about the process of failing continuously. And, so you just learn to accept failure and you absorb it. And then it pushes you to something that's new and hopefully special at different. So the act of just getting your tail kicked every day by these two are forms that you know in not really as good as. People believe to be at. It helps you live keeps you humble and keeps. You keeps you healthy. No. Yeah. I mean it's. It's interesting, also because SORTA well when I look at The two together and it sounds like from what I. Know Your approach to both. You know it's. It's not about structure. It's not about surly building the outline affiliate it in it's. It's about it's jazz like either way. It's jazz absolutely I. Mean, but you know you have to be careful when you say that because okay I saw bruce springsteen one of my life. Back in the eighties he was the meadowlands and I didn't even WanNa go, you know as as like rock and roll you know man. The concert was four hours and it felt like it was a half along. I mean it was. So good I mean you know Clarence climate? But this was when he was you know. I don't know if you've listened to even know who Bruce Springsteen is now they did they do. I saw him play three years at you know what used to be. The meadowlands also for four hours and my mind was blown. Oh, he's just the bad cat. Ridiculous man so I mean, but my point is that. If if it's right, you just feeling and Bruce springsteen got plenty jazz in his music. I mean you know in a he? Doesn't you know? His jazz isn't supposedly like the most sophisticated? But. There's plenty jazz there. I mean what is Jazz. You know you know as as Louis Armstrong said. You have to ask I really don't know. You know music that brings that moves to the heart. That makes you feel good inside. The gives you hope. And you WanNa hug you a neighbor. That's jazz and Bruce in that regard. Bruce Springsteen is loaded myth because he's you know. He spent his entire career trying to make people see the best part of themselves and others, and that's really that's what jazz should do. That's what any good music should do, and that that includes off alums loans of classical music. so. For Me Jazz and Blues and Gospel have been part of my. DNA might musical DNA. But that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate you.
