After resting, I begin again. A happy accident embraces my ear. Enthusiasm soars as I continue to follow the whisper through the first passage and then find another way to sound the second one. Pausing to work out a section of arpeggios, I begin the search again. My hands move with their own knowledge and another passage, different, yet pulling the previous material along appears. Be free I whisper to myself, trust the process. Look again, with stillness within.
Listening to a take from earlier today, my mind hears a conclusion. After playing this through I am not convinced, but listen more and then just maybe the path through is clear. One more taping. Then I put my guitar to rest.
Trusting, that my mind will play with this as I sleep. Tomorrow if I wake, I'll begin again.
