A little look into a page from my diary at a very creative moment in my life...
I wish I could share this with you. There are moments in all our lives that are filled with intensity, creativity, and an unnameable something else. Often following a period of depression or change of circumstances, and sometimes, for no reason at all. It is there.
Many of you who know me personally will know of my aversion to drugs and mind changing substances (ahem, look, coffee is NOT in the same category!). Despite the fact that it makes me terribly uncool amid musician circles, I believe it is much more meaningful to apprehend the miraculous in sober consciousness, and besides, I doubt I could handle anything more psychedelic than the creative states I get into at times like this.
I am filled with fire. Something that burns hot and cold and makes me see stars... and write songs... and invent words. I spent a good deal of this morning joyfully singing nonsense words! I am playing with the idea of putting an improvised song on the new album.... my voice is taking me to utterly new places, and I wish I could show you. It will probably take me years to unfold all this and get it 'out' in the mainstream, but let it be known! Tuesday 16th August 2016 was the moment of discovery! The bursting forth of an intense creative singing energy that had been brewing for years...
And look, creativity is as natural as the earth. Why shouldn't this energy be available to us? It's hugely under-emphasized in our education system but it is possible, for any person, any where, at any time to become spontaneously filled with it!
But here, the proof is in the pudding, and I'm desperate to get into a studio and 'serve'! Oh but for lack of money! I absolutely cannot wait to share this new round of explosive creativity with you - new songs are buzzing in the background, nearly ready to be born :) Hold on to your hats folks!
