Going to try and blog 365 days a year, new challenge I’ve set myself!
Doing this every day, some get written when I’m nice and fresh in the morning with a nice cup of coffee and all ready to start the day… This one however is being written at 11pm at night after 2 ibuprofen, 2 Robaxin, a glass of wine and half a tub of haagen dazs ice cream and the tele is on in the background too… Just a disclosure in case this makes no sense at all!
OK… Here goes!
Really been enjoying Carrie’s current single ‘Good Girl’.
We’ll be doing our own version of that for this Tuesday’s
‘Kitchen Session’ this week…
Something caught my attention today that Carrie said about why there was a wait
of 2 and a half years from her last album, until this one.
Thought this was very cool, she very unapologetically said, “To me, if you have no life in between albums, you have nothing to write about … I have to live”
She says she doesn’t want to be an artist on what she calls a ‘permatour’ “I think I just made that word up. They live on tour and when they aren’t on tour, they are making an album. ”
I found it refreshing to hear an artist not so driven they are forgetting to live and enjoy the journey… I keep having to remind myself that “life is what happens while you are busy making other plans”… Don’t forget the day to day, don’t forget to treasure, don’t forget to savour and enjoy the journey… Good for you Carrie taking your time, she and we all, will be all the more creative, connected and compelling for it….
Speaking of that, off to bed now, got to try and keep that precious balance.
We all “have to live”, and live well!
Like that quote.
