I had the most amazing opportunity this past weekend to spend time in nature and be with a group of songwriters! We had a time of connection and reflection. I wrote a couple new songs, songs that mean a lot to me. I was struck so much by the fact that the extra supports were so helpful- meals being provided and yoga, hikes and True Nature Writing. The writing really opened things up for me. I got writing about things I had no idea needed to come to the surface and it felt like once this happened there was more room for the songwriting. I also realized that relationships I have built along the way are there to give me extra support.
I know that I have missed a couple of blog posts. There has been some personal things that have pulled me away from blogging. I am also three weeks away from my retirement from nursing. I am starting to get excited and scared all at the same time. I keep saying that I haven’t planned anything for when I retire but that is not entirely true, I am planning a summer mostly at the lake. I know that I will move forward with my musical life but I am not sure exactly what my world will look like. Maybe my type A personality can take a rest and let more of my child come out to play? I am trying to leave space and I have certainly realized how much I like to plan, that that helps me feel more secure. Hmmm. That is interesting, I wonder what the future will hold?
For now I have a few shows to prepare for in June and I am also working with my producer on a single that I will release in the fall. As well, there has been rotter tilling to do and a garden to plant. I wish for you the loveliest of months, full of joy. May creativity find a way into your heart.
Yours in music and creativity,
