A simply amazing man and a magnificent documentary!!
1 February 2013 | by (New Brainfels, Texas) – See all my reviews

Those who have been to and experienced the spectacular sights that the top of the mountain has to offer - if only for a brief moment in time - those fortunate few who have had the rare opportunity to have taken in the magnificent views from the top before losing their footing, may no longer occupy a spot at the top of the mountain, but they have nonetheless brought back with them something that most others can never hope to achieve; perspective.

To have been to the top - albeit briefly, only to have lost one's footing as a result of the perilous winds that so often bear down on those who foolishly try to stay atop the mountain too long, is far better than to have been among the many who have valiantly climbed the mountain for an entire lifetime, yet never managed to get anywhere near the summit.

Perspective is knowing first-hand the difference between the top of the mountain and the deepest valley below. Perspective is knowing where best to position oneself in order to achieve true balance and harmony in life - ideally somewhere midway up the mountain - high enough up to be able to enjoy the view, but far enough away from both the top of the mountain and the valley below to avoid the perils and pitfalls that await those who risk staying too long in either of those places.

Congratulations, Mr. Williams. You have been blessed with the most enviable of life's assets. Assets that can offer greater personal satisfaction than all the worldly goods that money might buy. You have been blessed with perspective, and the balance that comes with it. With those blessings come inner peace. And in my humble opinion, if anyone is deserving of these blessings, it is you.

Outstanding film. Thank you for sharing with us the wisdom and perspective that gave birth to the gracious and humble human being you are today. Thank you as well for the gifts you've bequeathed to Americana in the form of the timeless musical masterpieces you created over a very successful career. Your music will live on in perpetuity, long after you and I have moved on, far away from this mountainside we share today.

Wishing you fair winds and following seas.

Semper Fidelis, Dave Winnett
