I haven’t been blogging consistently. My inner monologue has been drifting into some darker places this week. When I sit down to write, the only thing I want to write about is obviously something that nobody else needs to read. My ramblings from this place do not seem like something worth sharing. Then I remembered that blogging is not about other people. This is where I work stuff out. If it happens to be interesting, entertaining, or uplifting, that is great. Ultimately it is where I solve my problems.
So here is the thing, I have been a “part-time musician” for the previous fifteen years. My twins just started kindergarten. I had grand illusions that when everyone went back to school, I would be able to be more “full-time.” That has not been true. We had hurricanes, pandemics, doctor appointments, meltdowns, and a minor bout of diarrhea. It’s difficult to know the next step when you can’t comprehend when you will be able to make that step. All right universe, I get it. It’s a stale mate. But now it is time for the next game. Set it up, let’s go.
