An Artist Grows in Brooklyn

Since graduating in 1993, Deric Dickens has been making his way up the East Coast. Now settled in New York, Dickens has released two albums and is working on more. Atlanta-based writer Nikki Igbo joins forces with Heath Croft to explore Dickens’ roots in Colquitt County, the inspiration he found here, and how it has shaped him into the musician he is today.

Back in the Saddle Again

For nearly 20 years, Colquitt County had no saddle club of which to speak. But, a group of horse enthusiasts took the reins and formed an organization that has become an important facet in the lives of both children and adults. John Oxford explains just how this club continues to have a positive impact on its members and why its future here is bright.

When memory doesn’t serve, Legacy Village at Park Regency offers a safe and caring alternative to other types of medical facilities. Residents suffering from Alzheimer’s are treated like family by a staff specializing in memory care. Celebrated local photographer Carrie Viohl uses both camera and pen to show how a recent art installation provides protection and tranquility to those whose memories are fleeting.

Music in Moultrie: Keeping the Small Rocks Silent

In the fourth of his series on our local music scene, Eric Foster-Whiddon sets his sights on the challenges posed by priorities. He delves into his own insight as well as that of others in order to provide us a helpful analogy to use when deciding what should come first in our hectic lives. As a result, he gives us more than a music lesson. Instead, he shares with us a lesson in life worth learning.

players. He says that Dickens is in a league of his own musically. “He could play just about any instrument he wanted to,” says Rouse. Dickens says his parents recognized his potential. “I was an only child, and I always begged for another sibling,” he says. “They didn’t give me the brother or sister I wanted, but my dad, who was a bit of Renaissance man, built my first sound system.” Guilford Dickens says he only did what any responsible parent should do. “You want to help your children no matter what,” he says. “It’s just something you need to do.” He says that he recognized his son’s passion at a young age and, although he knew nothing about music himself, Guilford Dickens says he encouraged his son’s talent the best way he knew how – by combing through photos from magazines and getting to work. “He could and did make whatever I needed for music,” says Deric Dickens. McLendon, an aspiring television and film-score producer, predicted a dazzling future for the high-school student, and he agrees that Dickens’ parents were crucial to his early successes. “Deric’s mom was always visible with the band boosters and helping out with activities whether it was for football games or big trips,” says McLendon. “She was very involved and very supportive of things she knew would help her son.” Dickens’ compass was clearly pointed north as an early adult. “When Mom asked if I wanted a high school graduation ring, I asked her to get me a snare drum instead,” he says, “and that’s just what she did.” “We even offered to buy him a car,” Guilford Dickens says. “His priorities were music.” Following his studies at Valdosta State University and the University of Tennessee, Dickens played gigs throughout Knoxville with the likes of jazz pianist Donald Brown, cornet player Kirk Knuffke and Columbia Records artist Robinella. Dickens has also had the rare opportunity to play with a 40-piece studio orchestra and a 280-member choir.

When he’s back here at home, you’re likely to find him wandering down a country road searching for inspiration and reconnecting with his inner improviser. “Jazz has always been there, and I’ve always played it,” he says. “The more artistic, creative side caught me later, but these things happen when they’re supposed to.” Rouse says the fact that Dickens has followed his passion is what makes him a true musician and separates him from someone who plays music. “He can’t do anything else,” Rouse says. “He doesn’t want to do anything else.” Dickens’ albums are available on iTunes.

and have been implementing them at varied levels for years. I can pull up my online calendars for my office time, music lessons and personal schedule. Heck, I even have future hiking trips on my calendar!

them really moved me on a deeper level. (Yes, this is the emo-

They can be new experiences with my wife and kids, a spiritual

after hiking in the forest for miles. These are the things that make my life… well, alive.

Was I choosing a life or living a life? Or was I letting my life (or lack thereof) choose me? I love my business, but had I lost something beneath the mountain of spreadsheets, emails, purchase orders and tax filings? Another quote that haunted me was from “Over the Top” by Zig Ziglar… “I don’t care how bad my life is, I don’t care how good my life is, there is something I can do to change it - and the choice is mine.” Who put those big rocks on my calendar? I did. Who told me that I didn’t have time to enjoy beauty, be creative, or have spiritual conversations? I did. I realized in that moment that I needed to get my heart rate up. I needed to prioritize the experiences that made me feel alive. And what did I do with this newfound clarity? I sat in my front-porch swing with my trusty old acoustic and wrote a song. Actually, two songs. Then I listened to a record from one of my favorite bands. A real record, the kind that is black, circular and groovy. Then I visited my online retailer of choice and made a wish list of records I wanted to add to my vinyl collection. And finally, I bought one. Of course, I want to do big things like travel to exotic places and write a book. However, right now, some of the most accessible ways for me to climb out from under my pile of boring rocks are to write beautiful songs and listen to beautiful records. After all, I got into this business because the 15-year-old me received a guitar and a few lessons for Christmas and started writing songs.

service if you are denying yourself the experiences that bring you perfect joy. Join me in considering the big rocks in your life, and don’t settle for boring ones. Put some life on your calendar, even if you find it in things as simple as songwriting and records. Music, in particular, has a funny way of stirring the soul. Our community is full of talented musicians who work hard at their art. More and more local businesses are providing a platform for live music, which is happening most weekends somewhere in Moultrie. Look for a show and make it a priority to go. Find songwriters who are sharing their original art and be sure to support them. A great place to start is Local Live, a singer-songwriter showcase

I have often questioned the real value of art and music in culture. Sure, we hold these things dear, but how can I choose to spend my time writing a song instead of doing something that seems more practical, like organizing my office or selling a product? What makes listening to good music a big rock in my schedule? First of all, I want to actually live the human experience, not just to survive it. Secondly, I want to expose my children to things in which I know they will find meaning and identity. (Really, I want to train them to identify truly good music and learn early in life that the best stuff never gets played on the radio.) Thirdly, I want to add my own hues to the palette that colors someone’s perception of the world, whether that happens through my original tunes, music that I recommend or conversations about stuff that matters. As I get older and watch the folks I care about get older too, I am becoming painfully aware that I have a limited amount of time to do the things that matter to me. A friend once taught me the things that get scheduled are the things that get done, so if it really matters it needs to go on the schedule. I guess I need to schedule some time to write songs. And get in more hikes. Also, playing some shows in coffee shops (other than my own) should get a spot on the calendar, too. Next comes that long-distance trip and the outline for my book! St. Irenaeus was on to something when he said, “The glory of God is man fully alive.” What are the things that make your heart rate rise? Where do you find a sense of purpose or perhaps a moment of clarity that inspires the conviction that this is what you were intended to do? For me, it starts with songwriting and records, but I’m a musician who attributes great value to beautiful melodies and smart lyrics. Perhaps you feel fully alive when teaching, talking or tinkering. No one else has to assign value to your passion, and you don’t necessarily have to pay the bills with it; all that matters is that it breathes life into your days. When you are living life, instead of simply choosing it, you will inspire life in others. Really, you’re doing us all a dis-

hosted by Beans & Strings on the second Saturday of each month. You might consider learning to play an instrument or writing songs yourself, but remember one thing: if it gets scheduled, it gets done. So if it’s important, it needs to go on the schedule!
