Was trying to tell myself I just had a mean case of the Monday blues. For the last... I don’t know how many Mondays. And I was sitting in my car tears welling up just feeling so unaligned and so tired and so out of sorts w myself. somewhere along the line I started letting go of my song... a little at a time. Distancing myself from the pain of the vision of the way I thought it would all look and so busy w other parts of life. And now I find myself so far removed. Even when I write or sing now, it’s for a job or to sell a song ... (which is good too of course - don’t get me wrong universe ;).) I haven’t written or said my truth it feels like - in so long. And maybe that’s bigger than just music. It’s unsustainable of course. We start to crack. The light sleeps through as Cohen so beautiful has said. And today I’m cracking. Yes I’m a new mom and I pour myself into the growth and process and the human gorgeous gift of the experience of that journey. And also there are other parts of me I have been avoiding ... Today it feel like I can’t go another moment without Saying what I mean. Singing what I mean. And sharing it no matter who’s listening. And also of course it’s painful. And hard to come up against these truths. And honestly, to even find and locate them sometimes. But I’m gonna try.
