Back in Action

First of all, I am so encouraged that people thought enough of my blog to post comments -- especially since I haven't posted anything in almost two years! Of course I had every intention of posting every week, but life kind of 'got in the way'. That's a pretty pitiful excuse I know, except that I was trying hard over the last two years to build a business and make ends meet.

But, lately I've been worried that I've given up too much of myself in the process -- so much so, that I've lost touch with how music used to make me feel (over-the-top ridiculously happy, sad, inspired, focused, absolutely moved to the core!). Now that's a scary thing to have to admit, especially for a musician and especially on a blog for all to see.

That said, I decided that the best course of action for me would be to purposely re-engage with myself, with music and with the creative process...even if I'm not inspired to do so... in other words, (hummm, how does that saying go???)...

"If the mountain will not come to Mahomet, Mahomet must go to the mountain!"

So this is me, committing to blogging here again in the hopes that I will reach an artistic tipping point that brings me back to what I love most about music and art and literature and life...
