Words to Live By (Bill Withers Edition)

It's ok to head out for wonderful. But on your way to wonderful, you're gonna half to pass through alright. And when you get to alright, take a good look around and get used to it 'cause that may be as far as you're gonna go.

For those of you who are fans of Bill Withers, it is imperative to add Still Bill to your must-see movie list. Being a *musician* these days may involve autotune and a fabricated image but Bill Withers is 100% the real deal. The documentary traces Withers life's course from his upbringing in rural West Virginia to how he left his fame and noteriety behind to focus on his family.

As a self-taught musician, Withers didn't cave to the recording industry's desire to have him fit into the R&B mold and stayed true to himself and his music. The man is a wise soul and cool as a cucumber. His words reminded me that life is a series of events and to make the most with what you've got. Have a lovely day!
