Steemit Openmic Week 80 - original "A Little Kindness"


Hiding in the midst
of our own decisions
When I look to a better day
I find it in the moment

A Little Kindness goes far beneath the surface
A Little Kindness goes deep within the moment
A Little Kindness goes far beneath the surface
A Little Kindness goes far

But a fleeting shadow
a moment irreplaceable
Progress means now
it's the limitation of life


Love is the answer
it's not bound by time
in the moment of everyday
we choose to love or look away

Oct.29,93 words and music by Mark Austin copyright 1993

Cool song! I feel like a swing reggae here. Nice.


thank you, I'm listening to your piece by Bach. I'm pretty sure those drums are your arrangement. :-) I have been envisioning drums in classical for a long time... My son plays classical violin. He is on a musical scholarship. I enjoyed your piece. It took some doing with the two shots. Nice to meet you.

So cool. Do you do this in public? Did I ask you that before?


I've only done a couple of gigs with the looper.... I've made my living as a pro player playing in bands ..... and no you haven't asked that before :-) but I've had it and wanted to.... BOOKING has been a thorn in my side all my adult life :-)


Mine too - I quit actively doing it. I participate in the hosting of a popular local jam, where enough freelance gigs find me to keep me fed, and that's been my passive strategy for the last few years.


I've hosted alot too through the years....even have a webpage, Musicians who love what yo udo are a lot easier to deal with than club owners :-)

you are very entertaining. I like your style.


thank you so much, I appreciate it. Stay tuned :-)
