I dreamed I was in a band last night. It's been almost ten years since I've been on stage. I miss it a lot. I like group creative projects - I often need something larger than myself to continue, to finish work, and the group is more than "just me". The dynamic is exhilarating, usually fun, sometimes frustrating - rarely boring. Though I haven't been making music, I have been in a collaborative project for months now, and it is informing my solitary work in a good way (I'm painting again), and I am waking up with the desire to create almost over all else.
