The contractor came back today to complete work on the house. Between seeing him again and the sunny weather, I feel like I’m timewarped into last year! Hopefully everything will be wrapped up with a minimum of fuss and muss. Last year was a real disaster. I can hardly believe we managed to get out our album with all the shit going on in my live/work space! Its a testament to our iron clad will, to be sure.
The garden is coming up so strong this Spring. Last year at this time, it was all just dirt and pine needles. All my hard work has certainly paid off out there. Now I’m just taking seeds from one area and planting them into another, wherever there happens to be a little blank space. Those are quickly filling in, though! I guess the “cottage garden in a can” seeds worked pretty well. Ha! All the bulbs I put in this Fall have gone nuts, so that I’m actually cutting them and bringing them in to enjoy.
What does this all have to do with music, you ask? Not much perhaps, but our state of mind and circumstances have an awful lot to do with songwriting. I had been writing some pretty sad songs over Fall and Winter, but maybe now I’ll start writing happy ones again?
