Isn't That Crazy?

Many years ago I attended a wedding. It was a Catholic ceremony with a full mass and was very formal and "by the book". My impression of the Catholic church was one of mystery, ritual, formality and little, if any, personality. Imagine my surprise when the priest said, "So Jim and Marilyn are getting married. Isn't that crazy?" What priest says that? What officiant pooh poohs the idea of marriage?

He then went on to say that none of us knows what will happen tomorrow, or next month or next year or certainly not in 5, 10, 25 or 50 years! He said it was crazy for this couple to make the commitment they were making when they had no idea what the future would bring. Then he said, "How beautiful! How beautiful that, despite not knowing, they are sure that they will face it together."

Well here we are in the latest drought. We've been here before, but that doesn't make it any easier. This time we have to feel a little less important to Clay. He has a son now. He has a relationship with Jaymes that is far more involved than when we thought of her as simply his executive producer. From what we know, Clay has a romantic relationship as well. These are RL for him. These are people who affect him daily in ways that fans never will.

We also know now that Clay has parted ways with RCA. Most of us believe that's a good thing. We also know that OMWH did not sell well when compared with his previous albums or whe compared to some other artists. That alone could be a whole separate blog!

In spite of these things, we believe that we will see him again. We believe that "the best is yet to come" ~tmJaymes. We believe that his career is still in its early stages and that all he is capable of doing will happen. We believe that he will tour for us. We believe that he will keep making albums and that they will be successful. We believe that he will be in movies and on TV and back on Broadway again sometime. We believe that TBAF will continue to grow and help children on a huge scale. We believe that the children of the world will continue to benefit from Clay's UNICEF ambassadorship. We believe that he loves us.

Isn't that crazy? How beautiful!
