Some of the best things in life are free
Some cost time or money but its all honey
When they come together to make
An unforgettable experience
A "peak experience"
That might even bring a tear of joy to your eye
As soon as my musicianship hit a certain level – where I could say in my head “I’m going to write a song based on something, someone or just an emotion” and it turns out as good or even better than I expected, I guess in a way, that has always been my goal, and I didn’t even know it.
This is the first year in my life that I can truly celebrate seasons and the holidays more as a songwriter and musician playing my songs than listening to my favorite (other songwriters / musicians) music.
Don’t get me wrong – I listen to jazz and other music daily, but my daily routine now includes taking my every day life experience and setting it to music. And yes, more than it feeling like a job, it required persistence and discipline.
What a gift! I’m so thankful. I’m able to feel the spirit of not only this season but every day – through music, lyrics and photography.
