Maybe it’s time we got back to the basics

This song, by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, comes to mind when I think of freedom: Luckenbach, Texas.

I’ve never been to Luckenbach, but I think the meaning in the song is adaptable to a lot of places. It’s not necessarily a physical location, but more accurately it is a state of being.

Getting back to the basics.

Doing the things you love, and removing the things that hinder you.

Keeping our minds and bodies occupied with better things helps us avoid focus on destructive things.

What can you do that can help you with your goal of staying off of Facebook?

Do you like to cook? Cook something!

Do you like to write? Write something!

Do you like to walk? Walk somewhere!

Do you like to take pictures? Take some!

Do you like to play music? Make some!

Do you like to read? Read something – but not on Facebook!

The only two things in life that make it worth living,
Is guitars tuned good and firm-feeling women.
I don’t need my name in the marquee lights,
I got my song and I got you with me tonight.
Maybe it’s time we got back to the basics of love.

Let’s go to Luckenbach, Texas,
With Waylon and Willie and the boys.
This successful life we’re living,
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Between Hank Williams’ pain songs,
An’ Newberry’s train songs,
An’ “Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain”,
Out in Luckenbach, Texas,
Ain’t nobody feeling no pain.

So baby let’s sell your diamond ring,
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away.
This coat and tie is choking me,
In your high society, you cry all day.
We’ve been so busy keeping up with the Jones,
Four-car garage and we’re still building on.
Maybe it’s time we got back to the basics of love.

Let’s go to Luckenbach, Texas,
With Waylon and Willie and the boys.
This successful life we’re living,
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Between Hank Williams’ pain songs,
An Newberry’s train songs,
An’ “Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain”,
Out in Luckenbach, Texas,
Ain’t nobody feeling no pain.

Let’s go to Luckenbach, Texas,
With Waylon and Willie and the boys.
This successful life we’re living’s,
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Between the Hank Williams’ pain songs,
An Jerry Jeff’s train songs,
An’ “Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain”,
Out in Luckenbach, Texas,
Ain’t nobody feeling no pain.
