Version 2.0 - Got Nuffin
I'm avoiding posting anything really personal lately but I'm making an exception today. I've been in a severe funk the last few days. That's moderately bizarre because overall things are going really well. I suspect my efforts of stay off caffiene and nicotine are negatively effecting my brain chemistry because I could truly see no reason for the degree of unhappiness I was experiencing. Sure, I lost someone I truly love to the ravages of time and distance and that hurts A LOT but that's par for the course in this life. People come and people go. The only other real hurdle was a profound dissatisfaction with the band since we have no regular drummer. As such we had become a "pickup band" playing with whatever drummer on very little rehearsal. Since we're playing some complex music this wasn't working. That problem resolved itself this past weekend as I opted to move forward with a new rhythm section which thankfully come with a rehearsal space. Thus the very expensive pro recording studio sessions at the end of the month have a much higher probability of producing quality material, or so I hope anyway. I have a chance at a really big opportunity at the end of the week but if I actually GET the opportunity it's going to entail some huge life changes. That has me a bit apprehensive but WTF? It's all in the Lord's Arms. Namaste.
