enjoying the wait
August 2, 2006

Its two weeks exactly until classes start. I'm really excited about that; about getting back to being busy, having something to fill up the currently empty spaces in my head. I function so much better when I have some structure. My best works are produced when I am on the fly, running at 190 miles an hour with my hair on fire. In one of those self improvement seminars I learned that busy people seem to know how to get things done-you have to prioritize as well as balance all business with appropriate down time. It takes some doing-practice, but it can be done. Even though I've been to some wonderful places, and heard lots of music, had some great conversations I do feel a bit like my brain has begun to atrophy. I think I'm addicted to learning. I still need to pick up my text books. I found a great bag for my books and my laptop even fits in it. Don't know how much I'll be carrying it around though. I happen to be a traditionalist when it comes to note-taking and managing my calendar. I'm ready!

Yesterday, MB and I went out to the "low-country" to see Bluesman play at a friend's coffee shop, and we had his computer that he ordered Sunday afternoon! (The low-country is the salt marsh inlets famous for fresh seafood)
Anyway, MB had me listen to something he recorded. He had written the piece quite some time ago. There were some references to "knowing-that-I-know-that-you-know" theme as well as being able to see things in another's eyes when their mouth is saying something completely different. He asked me if I identified with it emotionally-which I did. What I didn't say to him that I should have it that it's very soulful, you can hear the pain and frustration of love falling apart. I'm pretty sure that was the intention. I wish I'd have told him that instead of what I did, which was immediately focus on the structure of his wording. Next time I'll ask him specifically what he wants me to listen for. He's been working on getting his songs down and wants to cut the album soon. It's very cool to hear his latest recordings and his ideas for the direction he wants to take his project. We've talked about what the cover should look like (when I was younger I wanted to create album covers-I worked as a graphic artist for a while) ALL HAIL THE CREATIVE PROCESS!!!

I'm waiting for the weekend to get here...we've got some fun things planned and I can hardly wait!
