I want to do it all, so I am

I love cake.  Who doesn’t?

So, why can’t I have my cake and not bury my face in its frosty goodness, too.  For the joy of not only myself, but the merriment of those around me.  This winter, I reformed the band.  I really had no choice. It was either go mad (madder than my standard…madness) or just do it.  You see, I cut music out of the picture almost altogether for a while, figuring, I had to prioritize, trim the fat, and get down to the business of taking the world over through my fiction.  I didn’t realize the massive hole that had left in my soul until I started playing again.  Now, here it is, the beautiful spring, and I’ve got a band, new music, I’m finishing old recordings, and I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time.

I know what you’re thinking:

“He’s got his cake! But there’s not a lick of frosting on his face.”

Not true.  My writing had  felt uninspired for sometime before making the decision to become a spandex wearing rock god again. I soon realized I was putting at the keyboard only to say that to say I’d written every day.  There was no real joy, just motions. Now that I’m back at the music, I’m inspired to write again.  As in, really ridiculously inspired.  And the best part is that there’s no good reason why I can’t do both.

Now you’re thinking “Gee, man. You’ve got a lot of time on your hands to be able to do that.”

Any time is a lot of time, if you use it appropriately. I’m not going to preach on this. What I will say is this:

You’ve got to feed your soul everything it needs. Sometimes, there just no choice to make. Sometimes you have to do it all.  And I’ll tell you–this cake is mother lovin’ delicious!
