Today is my day off and boy, did I need it. I’ve been working strange hours for the past three days. It felt good to sleep ’til 10 and take my time getting out of bed. I actually thought it was impossible for me to sleep late, like I did when I was in high school and college. The past couple of mornings, despite my bedtime, I found myself undeniably awake at 8, 9 AM. But I feel good that I got my eight hours. And I feel good about today.
I planning on getting back in the studio soon. I’m looking forward to laying down some guitar tracks for two songs I’m working on. Rhythm is all set, but the bass and lead I’m still working out. I’ll probably send that email today. I’ve also been working a lot, which I am happy about.
Today is one of those days where I know I would love to sit down and do nothing all day, just eat and watch TV. But I’m going to try to make something of it because I have a few errands to run (and I really need to get my ass to yoga). In The Sound of Music, Captain Von Trapp says, “Activity suggests a life filled with purpose”. And I’ve always loved that line. It helps to contextualize my life a bit (and maybe not stay at home so much). It motivates me to do things and be out in the world. Because how can we write a good memoir in 30 years if we’re indoors all day?
