Chugging along

I’ve been keeping up with posts (though a couple a day late, sorry) and song writing.  Re-wrote an original from 5 years ago that I’d been meaning to finally hash out, and now I have! The progression is good, the melody needs a bit of work, but that will come together with lyrics.  I’m still not very good at writing lyrics… though I guess if I just start it will get better.  The stumbling block comes from getting started in writing them.  I become too wrapped up in what would sound good here, or whether that word will convey the right meaning, etc.  I guess that is a part of song writing itself, but this is the danger of being educated in music.  I got to learn how to simplify and write something I like.

In other news, it’s a balmy 3 degrees right now with a cloudy sky disappearing into a clear evening.  It’s kind of surreal.  I remember when I was a kid, the school would always talk about Groundhog Day and we’d always know when spring was going to end.  Apparently this year we have 6 more weeks of winter.  I’d say that’s true, but today’s weather…

May as well go out and enjoy it while it lasts!
