Find the Good News with Oran Parker

Ep. 34 - The Beat Goes On Ft. Jeremy Boudreaux - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

April 10, 2019

Find the Good News has been a healthy mix of people I know, people I don’t, and a lot of good people that I’ve been indirectly connected to through my friendships with others. This show has been an experiment. What happens when you ask this simple question; where are the good people? When you put that signal out there, you get a signal back, and that’s how I met local musician, music teacher, and business owner, Jeremy Boudreaux. Jeremy and I connected online, through a friend-of-a-friend, and not long after we made first contact, we lost a dear friend that connected us across space and time. You see, for a long time I’ve felt that there’s a beat, a drumming, a pulse that’s resounding through the past, the present, and the future. If we take a minute to listen, we can hear it, not with our ears, but somewhere deep in our cells, in a place inside our bodies where we can feel our ancestors, all of our individual histories syncing up, plucking the strings in our spiritual hearts. It’s that beat that makes you look closely at where you’ve come from, all the things that had to happen to get you right where you are today. It’s the beat that vibrates out from your actions, the beat that rumbles inside the people around you, the beat that people will hear long after you’re gone. In speaking with Jeremy, I felt that deep percussion. Where did Jeremy’s cadence come from? While many people in their twenties were enjoying the fresh air and freedom of being a young adult, Jeremy Boudreaux was beating cancer, a fight that tightened snares, refined his rhythm and led him on to plans and achievements he hadn’t considered. He speaks with a sharp tap, honest and direct, and I found he embraces a kind of masculine compassion that I feel is severely lacking in this world. After visiting with Jeremy, I’d say there’s nothing wrong with a little chest thumping if you’re doing it to wake your own loving heart. Listen to this episode, and I think you’ll feel it in your chest too, the thump-thump-thump of something trying to get in, and maybe something trying to get out. Go ahead and let it. That’s Jeremy Boudreaux’s story taking up shop in your mind, then opening the windows so others can hear. So, make a little room. Set up a drum, and let the good news beat go on.
