State of flux.
We’re all in it, despite whether we think we are or not. Yesterday was a long busy day for me. I’m not sure if it was for everyone in the world. I don’t feel like I accomplished a lot but when I list it out it certainly was quite a bit.
Today is almost opposite. I haven’t been running like a madman so far. I do plan on getting some things done though. I’ve started sketching out two more songs yesterday. So that’s a pretty big accomplishment there. I’ll likely start one or two more ideas today. That would bring me up to 35 or 36 new songs if that were the case.
I also have a scheduled poker game for the evening. But before then I need to deal with some errands and make some phone calls to see where some business matters currently reside in the grand scheme of things.
One thing I pretty much finished up yesterday was organizing my CD collection. What an undertaking. I kinda felt like John Cusack in High Fidelity. Great movie by the way, in case you haven’t seen it. At one point in the movie he decides to organize his collection autobiographically. That’s downright neurotic. It’s hard enough sorting alphabetically with several hundred CD’s. There’s no way I could easily pinpoint when and where I bought a CD if it related to a person or event. I don’t think. Maybe, but it would be tough.
I realized there were a whole lot of CD’s and music I hadn’t listened to in quite a while. So it was like discovering some music I already own, all over again. I stumbled on some stuff that will likely fill my Sunday’s Child requirements for a while since I have lots of CD’s by artists that never saw the light of day.
In going through all of this and weeding out that which was junk, I’ve started to see that I lost a bit of my tidyness that I used to be so anal about. Of all the things I accomplished yesterday it was getting the music organized that felt the most rewarding. Isn’t that weird?
Mark Duval has written a song called Change Your Mind. You’re likely listening now, or maybe it just finished as you were cruising through my blabbing. The nice thing is it represents the pace I feel like today as compared to yesterday. Much more relaxed, more down to earth. As was immortalized in Ferris Buellers Day Off – life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop to take a look around once in a while, you’ll miss it.
How often do you take a moment to notice your surroundings? Does everything change every time you look? Are you a part of the change? Tell me how you deal with change.
In the meantime, be a part of the change in this way, buy Mark’s song. It will change your life by making you feel good. Mark will feel good with the extra dough, and I’ll feel good cause I helped make it happen.
