It’s amazing how a good cleaning can improve your general outlook, not to mention your flow of energy. In recent weeks I’ve let my bad habits pile up in the studio, like the detritus of some half-crazed hoarder. It’s no wonder there’s been no progress on Windhaven’s album. The studio had become so cluttered that I didn’t like going in there anymore. It was like kicking aside trash in a landfill trying to find a clean place to sit down. Okay, it wasn’t remotely that bad. But it’s certainly true that days passed without me even opening the door.
A few days ago I decided to set things right. Deep in my heart I felt that the time grounding and clearing had come. It’s time to get the bloat in the water and see if it’ll float. That won’t happen if we’re bogged down by extra weight.
I realize this all sounds rather vague. How do you sum up a resolution that was made in a quiet moment of unexpected determination? Words can’t sum it up. In the end the only thing that matters is the results. Getting things in order is a step in the right direction. It’s hard to shape the ether into solid shapes when you’re knee deep in chaos.
I’ll be working on Windhaven’s first album this week. It’s time to get this done, so that we can move on to the next stage. There’s magic there. And now that the energy is flowing again, it’s time to make this a reality.
