It’s fresh today. Cool air and low cloud. I’ve barely seen the ocean since coming home from America. I know it’s there, less than a mile away. I’ve been in the studio mostly. Recording final vocals for the album. Each day a step closer to completion. Tamas is the Sanskrit word. It has many meanings, but I particularly like the meaning of bringing something to its full and realised state. A natural law.
This week has been productive. I’m on track to complete the recordings before Christmas. It’s been emotional, expensive and rewarding. To sustain everything I now need to find some paid work. Money is a funny thing. Love it or hate it – it’s hard to do without the stuff. To link doing what you love with what you earn is tricky. It is a fine balance especially as we are obsessed with placing value on money alone.
I feel blessed to be having such rich experiences. Most importantly to realise that music is powerful and universal in connecting people and that’s my job.
