I've been MIA for a week. There are several reasons: our last week of freedom before my hubby started a new job, church responsibilities, getting registered for school (for me), prepping a new home school year for the kids...
And as much as I'd like to blame all those, what it really comes down to this one thing: MUSIC.
There is the dark side and the light side to my creativity. I call my writing the dark, and my music the light. That's not to say one is evil and one is good, but they are two opposing sides of the same entity: opposites almost. We all face that battle--which effort deserves priority?
Friday's Song (now lovingly dubbed "Mirror of the Heart") is an unfinished work, but I thought you might like it anyway. This is what happens if I sit down in front of a piano for an hour. (Forgive the performance. Playing piano for people freaks me out.)
My husband can't decide which career path to push me down, music or writing, but he'd like me to get decisive one way or the other.
We all deal with opposing forces, so what are yours? And which voice are you listening to today? (Mine are currently arguing for meuntser vs cheddar. Must be lunch time.)
