So here I am again… I’ve got myself into a groove, literally and figuratively.
Music is important to my practice. I make it, sing it, listen to it, and sometimes very consciously DON’T listen to it.
I had a heavy admin and form filling day yesterday, so today I’m finding some joy.
Started with three times round The Little Unsaid’s ‘Imagined Hymns and Chaingang Mantras’ then on to Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘By The Way’… great stuff… and drawing the grooves the whole time until I get to ‘Don’t Stop’ at which point I always have to stop whatever I’m doing and dance.
“This life is more than ordinary…”
Despite the arthritis, which thankfully today is not too bad, I get up and madly throw myself about the studio. I don’t think anyone else is in the building, so when the track is finished I turn it up and put it on again. And again. And possibly again.
Then it occurs to me that my ability to dance while no one is watching is a rare and wonderful thing, so I attempt to video myself as a reminder that this is what good days look like.
“This life is more than just a read through…”
