Sometimes there’s dark in the light

The world says “Breathe”

Everyday these past few days has been an intense push musically. I’m feeling out to sea, though the music sounded good today.

I was ambitious this morning and listed three things I will let go of, three things I am grateful for, and three things I will focus on.

Today I will let go of:

  • expecting the dress I ordered to arrive by Thursday in time for the show
  • self-hatred
  • worrying about money

Today I am grateful:

  • for Graham’s kindness, humor, and honesty
  • to listen to music that is original, spacious, and vulnerable
  • I have a beautiful voice

Today I will focus on:

  • making music
  • making art
  • being a happy and healthy person

I was peaceful driving in silence while looking for a parking space. It took about 45 minutes to find a spot this morning. I planned on only being in the city to rehearse for a couple of hours, then somehow I managed to spend $50 and five hours in Manhattan. I jumped on the wrong train back to Brooklyn in my haste to get home.

Tomorrow I will paint and practice music at home. 

My time got pulled today – I got pulled. I can see where my boundaries slipped.

I can slow down. I can miss my friends who aren’t here. I can notice how slippery it feels to let go of control of handling my mother’s care. I can accept that things are changing swiftly enough. I can breathe.
