The days and nights seem to run together. We are in home and yard repair mode and spend most days working on the house and yard. The 10th was Kayden's 8th birthday. It seems like he has always been here and just arrived all at the same time.

Liz has a new baby boy named Kai Carmello Luke. He is a beauty and full of zest for life. He loves to eat a lot and she is taking great care of him.

I am doing Wednesday nights in June at The Wild Vine Bistro 7-10pm. It is an acoustic mellow show. So far I have had Jimmy Culler on bass sitting in and John Matthews on percussion. Last week I had Paul Pontrello sit in on lead guitar.

It is tough to play. I think the work I am doing on PTSD is tough and the awareness of the effects of suppressing all those memories and feelings all these years is both enlightening and tiring. It is another gray northwest day. I miss the sunshine and rolling hills of California but it is good to be home with the family and friends.

During a counseling session today I learned that there is a site referring to PTSD growth that points out the possible benefits of trauma.

Andie is visiting my father in Arlington Texas for a few days and I am sitting here thinking about life.

Sending out the love

Greg Murat is a part of the family of writers, bloggers, musicians, guitarists, poets, artists, husbands, friends, papa's,, singer songwriters, leaders, business consultants, worker bees: all  those who wear many hats. I love to write music, prose, technical guides, verse, lyrics and poetry. This journal or blog is a release in free form and I am happy to let it all out and thankful to have the chance. I have to be reminded from time to time that people do read it so I need to filter some of what I say or change names to protect the guilty or innocent party.
