For the past few weeks, I've done a lot of things, but none of them have been recording. Road trips, sewing, watching movies and tv shows, and jamming loud music, have all been highlights. One day, I started to listen and mix one of the songs, but it was short lived. I know it seems crazy and counter-intuitive to "do nothing", when I should have been hard at work. But sometimes, the hard work is just living.
Today, I read through Rupi Kaur's "Milk and Honey", and my heart wept as my chest clenched and my stomach churned. The emotion elicited from her poetry was expected, as I feel in extremes. But reading those words and feeling those feelings jump started something in my brain that allowed me to begin a new song, something I hadn't been able to do in months. I would recommend the read to anyone. It can be as short or as long of an experience as you would prefer, meaning, it's a short book, but the words can keep you lingering in thought on what they mean to you. Let me know if you get a chance to check out the book.
