It feels good to be writing again. I’ve spent so much time trying to settle into this new life I’ve given myself that I’ve forgotten my need to write; it’s not a want or an obligation, but a need to be expressing myself.
To start with, the songs are coming again. I sit down at the keys for an hour or so, and usually come up with 3 or 4 ideas to expand on. I am aiming to keep Operation Melody running again this year, but I’m finding that I get a little sidetracked with covers projects, re-recordings of old tunes, and new ideas that keep coming into my little brain. I’ve had a lot of emotional inspiration lately. I went to the US to send some friends home and reconnect with someone very important to me, and things went well, but things are open-ended. I hope to return within the year, as I’m sick of missing people. One of the worst parts of life, I think, is missing people. It may be a “small, small world”, but to me it just feels far too big.
Love is chasing me around so far, which feels a bit like 10 phones starting to ring in a room that has been mostly silent for 3 years. I am getting back into the dating game, and forging new relationships. I feel I am definitely ready, but I have to take time to enjoy all the little moments that come when you are learning someone new.
I think religion is going to take a big focus this year, as well. While I usually keep these things to myself, I want to make this a really spiritual year. I’ll keep you posted.
I have so much to expand on! So many little side-projects to amuse myself with. I’m looking forward to it. Now if I can just catch up on the 2 tracks I should have online by now…
And to start with, let’s change that old header!
We’ll talk soon.
