It has been a productive couple of days, mainly, because Sunday I actually allowed myself some writing time (an hour to be exact). I haven't written more than a few lines for about three months now. I stopped writing for a very practical reason. I have enough songs for an album and I really needed to spend time nailing them down instead of churning out new ideas.
You know, something very horrible that happens when I get very busy doing lots things and don't do the things that give my life meaning - I turn into a busy little achiever. To-do lists begin to appear out of nowhere and deposit themselves all around the house. I become ever-so-slightly neurotic about irrelevant things like rearranging furniture and an expert at find other projects that take time away from my priorities. But when I realign and devote time to the things that are most important in my life, certain wonderful things begin to happen. I start feeling more settled, the to-do lists stop distracting me and life becomes vibrant.
So here's wishing you space and time to pursue the things that you love and all the joy and peace that comes with a happy heart!
Welcome! Here you'll find my notes on my adventures in songwriting and life in general.
