I love this Woody Guthrie thought today. Music does comfort my soul so much. Cuddling me when I'm upset, understanding my pain and sympathizing with me. There have been some times. I'm glad such poignant beautiful songs were out there when I needed them.
On other days it also makes me think in ways I hadn't thought of....disturbing me into thinking from a different perspective. Oh music.
Today is my absolute favourite type of day since I've been about 8. The day of warm wind. It's cloudy yes, but there is this fantastic energy in the wind. It's windier than usual but the warmth makes me lean into it instead of hide away from it. And I can't even describe the energy. It feels a little electric on days like this. It makes me feel even a little giddy. When I was 8 I would twirl around and laugh in this kind of wind. Then I would fall down in the grass, lie completely still and just listen to it rushing around, enjoying it's playfulness.
We are writing again. I am so excited for our next album. Last week we wrote two more songs, one called 'The Dark Ages' and one called 'Slippery Slim'. Add that to the ones from the week before 'Disconnected' and 'Heartbreak' and they are adding up. When it gets to final decision time, we will have to carefully pick and choose who fits the raw acoustic theme we are hoping for this time.
And with that I wish you a wonderful day on this warm, windy, anything-can-happen kind of day. Enjoy.
