The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 568

It is impossible for me to keep this One Shot to just one single picture today, but I am sure you will not mind. I have broken my One Shot rule many times before and as we get closer to discharge, I have a feeling any and all rules and parameters I have set for myself here during this countdown series will continue to be broken, bent or even completely ignored.

From that point on, he most likely became an ardent student of music. And although it was no doubt he was hearing his own compositions in his head and perhaps keeping a journal of poetry that would transform into lyrics, the first songs he sang were probably the songs of other artists.

His deep respect for music (all music) and his choice to cover many songs that were sung in a language foreign to him (English) are valid and honorable reasons to continue to love this amazing man.
