As I come to terms that my poor guitar hand is undergoing serious challenge, I have to realise that this is all part of the journey. When musicians. performers and many of those making their living from their craft, stumble upon physical defects, its the hardest thing in the world to come to terms with watching your passion fall to the wayside. I have to say mind that 2018 has been an extraordinary year for me in finding my HOPE again and really digging to the pits to save my soul – what a blessing, despite what others may think. I am still learning and moving forward, even if not at a pace what others may appreciate.
So winter is upon us, I’d say, sooooooo cold, yet still early November. For many of us, its a time of year that we find ourselves falling into isolation, sometimes, not even to our own realisation; it creeps up on us just like that dreaded cold-weather creeping in and engolfs us into a place of darkness and not necessarily a visible one. My friend #Pastor Stan used to always remind me of my hibernation period and that if he didnt hear from me, he understood why.
So as we look to find ways to occupy ourselves indoors, my coping mechanism will likely be finding some old clothes to sift through, more office tidy and sifting through the years of junk we harbor… clearing out or find a cupbooard door to paint or producing something amazing, by acident. As you are aware my physical aspects aren’t as exciting as they used to be so there is no simply, running down the shop or up the road for a Friday night karaoke. So my support for any of you reading this and looking for hope to get through the winter, start that planning now. Don’t wait till its here and then go into panic or depressing behaviours of which can sometimes appear to have no exit. I can’t wait till the day I can invest in a #Nutirbullet and spend time making fab soups and recipies, for after last November’s endeavours and weighloss, which lead to several trips to the dentist and such despair, I wouldnt wish it on anyone. Now it was through this great dispair that I find the courage and will to write Happy New Year which went on to be “Its A New Day”. Out of the darkness came the light of #hope and #desperation to survive what I can only describe as ‘my slumber’. So people, you know inspiration surrounds us more so now than ever and we find the internet as our best friend. Remember a boost is just a click away and sometimes our best advisors are people we don’t actually hang out with.
