Verve (5/22-5/26)

Maintaining goals’ timeline is a tricky proposition, finding the balance between what is necessary for life (job, family and/or friend commitments) with the artistic (experiences, solitude, and time).  The necessary seclusion to write runs contradictory to the desire to participate in humanity, providing new experiences to build upon.  The self-reflection I have been doing is looking backwards, which removes from existing in the moment – allowing emotion to wash over and be felt.  Those emotions provide an anchor to the everyday, dressing moments and interactions in person-specific contexts.  Without personal experiences there is not shared humanity, isolating from loved ones and strangers, removing beautiful complexity from my world.

 

Every year I create a soundtrack that can be used to act as touchstone for that year; during the year, the playlist is a living breathing thing, its songs coming and going as I change throughout the year.
