Yeah, but today feels different. Don't get me wrong, I'm not actually going out there to feel the day, cripes, forget that! I just mean I feel hopeful today. Usually the extreme cold makes me feel tired and somewhat down in the dumps. Not today. I have a hopeful feeling today. There are good things afoot I think. For all of us.
It doesn't matter exactly what they are, certainly I am pretty excited about touring and playing music coming up this summer. And we are really excited about the new album that is about to get started on manufacturing. These are fantastic things. February is almost out. We are almost there. Not that March promises anything, if I've learned anything from March, it's that she can be a fickle bitch and is easily pissed off. Still, March, I can hardly wait to see your face. Bitchy or no.
I'm listening to an album I haven't properly heard before right now, and it is making me feel. The album is Jason Isbell's, SouthEastern I believe. He turns a nice tune that Jason Isbell. My mood is intermingling with the music and it is making me feel hopeful about the world. And why not. Feeling overwhelmed and depressed has been no fun and possibly not all that helpful.
Music is my favourite. And we actually get to play and do it. I think I'd like to take a moment to just be thankful for that fact. Whatever happens, I am so happy that music is part of my life and I get to play. I have hands, fingers, a voice, an instrument (or two...), and there are the kindest most amazing people that I get to share stories with.
And yes it is monday, and yes it is -30 something, I can't control my happy moods any more than I can control the world crashing in. Today I thank you for being part of my journey. I can't wait to see what we find around the next bend.
