Oh, it felt so good! I can’t remember the last time Stacey and I had a full recording session, but today we actually made time for one, and completed a song.

I have so much on my plate these days, and with homeschooling my youngest, sometimes it seems so overwhelming. This week my little girl was away at the beach. It felt strange not to have her here, and I missed her, but this time alone, also, helped me to realize how important it is to have some balance in my life.

Even with things that are really important and worthwhile are not good if you lose sight of everything else. One of the hardest things for me to do is to give me time…time to reflect, time to create, and not just in a product/business sense, but to create for the joy of it.

I love being an independent artist, but when you are, you have to wear most, if not all, of the hats. That can take you away from the spontaneity and freshness of the creative flow. It can make you a stranger to your own creative muse.

This week I have given my self the opportunity to get reacquainted with that muse. And it feels good.
