Vertigo is finally behind me. So long, room spins; hello new tunes.
I'm trying something different with this round of songs. Rather than try to capture how I'm feeling, I'm trying to capture a sound that feels like me. That may seem like the same thing. But oddly enough, it's not.
What's pouring out of my fingertips and voice box lately is less like surrendering to my emotions and more like getting to know myself better. Weird but wonderful concept. It's pretty incredible being in your 40's and becoming reacquainted with yourself. Oddly enough, it feels a lot like a return to who I used to be.
Reader, I don't know if it's because I spent the weekend playing with my little kids in the snow, or if it's because I'm trying to write songs that sound like me, but I'm experiencing a "nice to meet you" sensation with a version of myself from a long time ago. I'm setting the intention to get to know her even more in the coming months. I'm excited.
It's Valentine's Day tomorrow, and if you don't have a sweetheart to tell how much you love them, don't forget to tell yourself. It's never a bad time to get to know yourself better. See you next Monday. -Em
