Last November, I wanted to do something special for World Diabetes Day. All the D-Bloggers out there in the O.C. were set to post something to help raise awareness about the big D.
I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to write a song.
On my drive home from work that day I started thinking about a song. I knew I wanted it to be a journey through some steps in my diabetes life. By the time I got home, I was singing the chorus and had most of the verses worked out in my head.
When I got home, I grabbed my guitar and tried to find the notes that I was singing all the way home. Not an easy task for me. After I did it just came together and I turned on my camera and recorded this.
I had so many positive responses and people asking for a downloadable copy that I decided to try and get it recorded professionally. Something I could be really happy with.
I finally did it. And I think it sounds pretty good.
Click here to open up iTunes right to the page where you can pick this up.
I should tell you that I chose the artwork for a reason. The symbol I used is not a maze, but a labyrinth. A maze you can get lost in but a labyrinth is a single path, a journey. Sure it twists turns and you never seem to know when it ends but as long as you keep moving, you will get to where you need to go. Much like life.
A labyrinth was the only thing that made sense to me in regards to this song.
Having this disease was not my choice but moving on in life and continuing on is my choice. It is our choice.
Also one thing I ask is if you do get it, if you would leave a comment on iTunes.
Kerri interviewed me about the song (which is a way better post then this one) and my home skillet number one Scott Johnson also posted about it (And his is also better then this.)
Please let me know what you think and thank you all for all the love and support I receive.
I love this community so much.
