The weekend

Trying to look busy and vaguely intelligent again.
It’s a Bank Holiday monday. I have nothing left to say.  Yep I think I am getting depressed again. I thought I was going to be able to get away with it, but its got me again. So I know how you feel because there area lot of you out there feeling much the same now. Also we dont know where we are headed really. How much of a risk is it worth taking when we have no way to figure out the odds?  How worried should I be at this stage in my life.  Who knows. I have been working on my violin bowing technique as its a weak point in certain aspects. There are some songs which are gestating in the background as ever. It maybe though that september will not be quite as productive as previous months due to the way I am feeling right now.  At present I mostly experiencing the world creatively through on line interactions as of course are many others. I am beginning to doubt my sanity very slightly now too in some respects. This last week I have had a flaire up of back problems too which has not done my mood much of a favour and added to the general air of doom. So first eat cake, then think on.Its difficult to look forward cheerfully though. We are are still here and that’s grand of course but just sitting on the porch gently rocking looses its appeal after a while. Also I am getting old and I do wonder what I am capable of in future if there is one. I have been fairly morbid recently in terms of my internal monologue. 

Why am I not learning a new skill or improving my French or whatever? The same reason that others are not I guess. 

How are you all doing?

The sun’s out and summers almost here. Are you all chasing dreams, I hope so.  And I hope that you are  not alone.  Where there is life there’s hope.

The Most Reverend Michael Curry stole the show at the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry with a sermon clocking in at 14 minutes.  It was all about love.

Maybe where there is love there is  hope.

 

January 2018 update

I am still waiting to find out if I am moving or not. It’s getting very frustrating to say the least. If it goes wrong again it will be the third time in a row. I don’t have too much faith at  present.   My back trouble is easing a little now which is a great relief though. I can’t seem get focus on anything to do with music projects at the moment though I have  a few ideas floating in the back of my mind.  January is a bit gloomy enough though at the best of times.  This week sees me at the grand old age of 61 which is something that I could not ever have conceived of really.
