Interesting you should respond that way, Chris. I have to admit, I've been pretty negligent about contributing to the WN community these days (actually, for at least 2 years now, since my first child was born). But when I was watching the blues documentary, it really touched me, and I was thinking, "Wow, I really want to talk to someone about this! Who is out there that can really understand whatever emotions I'm feeling while watching this?" And I just felt a compelling need to come to WN and see what folks were saying and post about it, because it's the only place I know where I would find others who would be able to identify with my feelings on this or, even if they don't exactly "identify" with them, at least interact meaningfully with regard to them.
I'm afraid given my current family and work obligations, that I still won't be real active around here for a while, but it's a good feeling to know that I can come back and hang when the feeling hits me. My wife is the greatest person in the world, but she would get bored real quick if I started talking about how Skip James was playing a 12-string with only 6 strings on it...
