Walk The Line

They talk about people who see the glass as half full or half empty. But then there are folks like me — folks who can just never decide.

Uneasy souls, we keep staring at the damn glass like an abyss. I stare until my eyes hurt and neck aches, never sure, never satisfied. Out of frustration with knowing that glass can never be full, I’d rather empty it altogether and at least put the gnawing uncertainty to an end.

Stopped wondering why I’m that way a long time ago. If some people find peace easily in this life, well, I’m just not one of ‘em. In my corner, constant restlessness prevails. All the stuff that’s supposed to help, supposed to deliver that elusive satisfaction, doesn’t work for very long, if at all. You can seek relief with assorted thrills and escapes, whether sold on TV or on a dark street corner. You can self-medicate via substances, money, power, attention, possessions, conquests, and all the rest. But that dark cavern of emptiness always returns to collect, doesn’t it?

So I’m always wrestling with the light and darkness. When I’m in the light, the darkness calls to me like a temptress, and when I’m in the darkness, well, the light becomes so hard to find. Guess when you’re doing wrong, there is no knowing better.

And yet sometimes, when least expected, the beauty of it all comes back out of nowhere, penetrating even the deepest darkness like a flashbulb. It grabs me by the heart and steadies my trembling hands. For a few fleeting, but exhilarating moments I feel ashamed — ashamed for being such a wretch, a sinner, an ingrate. At those redemptive, humbling times, the glory is nearly more than I can bear. I find myself playing my guitar with such joy that the dirt falls from my fingers on its own.

Yes, there’s hope down there in the depths. Again and again, I’ve found it. Even after I’d stopped bothering to look.

The struggle keeps me honest, I suppose. Or close enough. I certainly don’t have a monopoly on pain, heartache, and trauma. I don’t even claim that the burdens of my load weigh heavier than anyone else’s. There’s no way of knowing. I pray for everyone these days. Having survived this long, all I know for sure is that, whatever the challenge or flaw or loss or confusion, the only way through is forward.

So I walk the line.

Best leather guitar strap on the market

I own a half dozen leather guitar straps, all handmade to order. The "Walk the Line" beats them all in the closest you can get to the perfect leather guitar strap. If I ever need another one, it will be another "Walk the Line", although I am sure the one I have will outlive me.

Best High End Custom Leather Guitar Strap on the Planet!

I own three Anthology Gear guitar straps. They are all beautiful, perfectly crafted, high quality 3" straps that are so comfortable and reliable.

I have the Shadowlands two tone, the Shadowlands Tri Tone, and the Walk the line straps and I'm pondering which style my next one will be!

I am spoiled by these and everytime I think I should get a cheaper strap for a change, I just can't make myself settle for anything less on my favorite guitars.

If you have a guitarist you love and want to get them a special unique gift, this is the next best thing to getting them another guitar! These straps are going to last multiple lifetimes and will become a real legacy handed down just like your favorite guitar(s). My wife bought me my first Anthology Gear strap as a gift and I was shocked thinking that it was too much, and then I loved it so much she got me another one. Recently I just pulled the trigger myself on the third one in my collection. These straps are that good, just like guitars, how many do you need - just one more!

Don't overthink it, just order one and you will never be dissapointed, but you may be coming back for more! Enjoy!

I just bought one of these and it is perfect. I've been buying Anthology straps for my best guitars, and this strap is ideal for my beloved Les Paul! The design is perfect, both aesthetically and functionally.

Better than described!

I normally play a 10 lbs. Les Paul and this strap is so comfortable that I don't even think about it now. The strap really looks as good as it feels too. I am very pleased with the quality and I'm sure I will pass it on someday because it is built to last.
I also purchased a wallet too which is equally great.
