Answering My Own Question.
6:30 pm EDT
Earlier today I found myself in this place: Emotionally spent, tired, & unmotivated. What to do? ... Pick up my guitar.
And as usual there was something about the vibrating strings that slowly helped me to center. Slowly sounding notes, allowing myself to be in the sounds. Quieting me, healing me.
I played through "Gathered Hearts" one time and then began to work on "When Love is Taken." Form is presenting itself, sections developing, me patiently following. Sad today to watch parents bury their daughter, a husbands loss, an older sister and a daughter bewildered and bewitched by emotion. May I find the notes that may honor this, may I embrace the life that I have.
