Structuring the Music of Life
The first six month period has passed with great fun with family, learning about music, poetry, the Alexander Technique, performance and life itself. More time developing my meditation practice, our Qi Gong practice and long walks. Major family obligations & vacations met and more to follow. But now what does the next six month period hold?
The foundation practices of meditation & Qi Gong frame my day, weeks, and life. Reading, learning, and experiences will continue to inform and develop. Going back to a family discussion we had on New Years Eve, I did hear myself answer a 'what's next' query with time to record again. When, how and with whom to undertake this remains to be determined but now I have stated my intention to proceed. Now I can structure my musical practices to address the level of execution to effectively record the pieces to be chosen. I will remain open to compositional opportunities as they arise. Mornings are my most productive times so these will be given to music practice within the already established framework that sustains and nourishes my life.
