A Disconnect

The other night at the men’s accountability group I attend, one of the guys brought in a song and said he thought we would like it. As the CD started playing, he handed each of us a sheet with the words printed on it, but without it being attributed to any artist.

Well, I recognized John Mayer’s voice right away and was immediately struck by the thought that this song, from his second album, about respecting and honoring girls/women was written by the man who wrote, Your Body’s A Wonderland” on his first.

Hmmmm. Mixing the message.

Seems to me there is a bit of philosophical incongruency going on back then.

after this?

Maybe not much to do about anything, but sometimes I just cannot shake a thought ….like this one.

What say you out there?

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    It will probably be most appropriate to share my view with you during one of our regular calls. It’s not that complicated in my way of thinking. E.

    Ray,
    It’s pretty easy to figure out. As years pass we all change and grow and look at life differently. As the father of a daughter I know that I want to protect her from the not so pleasant things in life, but I raised her to think for herself and look at all sides of any issue. I also know that the she wouldn’t exist if at some point I didn’t think like the guy in “wonderland”. I can only hope that who ever she ends with has a little of both of the guys those songs talk about.

    • Thanks, Dale. I have received several e-mail comments that are similar. I think that it was the fact that some very painful, personal experiences are tied to “Wonderland” and my comments ended up being filtered through those times. You, like the others, bring up good points. And as always, thank you for being a faithful reader.
