Whew... life has been exhausting and hard for the last few months, which is why no new music. Major upheavals that were beyond anything I could ever have foreseen, such that it all seems like some bizarre unreal dream.
One facet of that has been a move at short notice, so am just settling in and setting up and getting used to a new normal. There are challenges ahead - with new rent to pay, and changes to my financial situation, there is much uncertainty. But on other scores, more stability. In the end, I will accept that uncertainty as it is at least primarily under my control!
After months of barely touching an instrument, today was the day I played and wrote some for the first time in ages! In part, getting things ready so there is a "routine" to be able to follow to get to the point of getting songs done on... well not paper, but digital storage!
And what did I work on, you ask? Well, have a Christmas number that is just a chorus, so began work on that - later than intended! Looks like it will be done a mere week before Christmas at this rate, a bit late to hit the charts heh!
And also had a good line or two yesterday - in the shower, where ideas often come to mind. Sang that in to Evernote, fortunately, as my plan to pick up and run with it was scuppered by a second bout of water flooding across the floor (the first occurrence was Thanksgiving itself!) - and that necessitated getting out and getting what I need to protect the mini-farm of computers that provide me with a salary. But I will return to that one soon, too, and see if I can move it on from those two lines into a complete song.
Whatever adversity you yourself may be facing (if any, and I hope there is none!) do remember that the sun will rise once more, bringing colour and warmth back to life - persevere, and have faith!
All the best,
