Gosh Durnnit it was fun to play at the Oakland Art Murmur! Total... total... complete.... total reinspiration!!!
I say reinspiration because I am aware that when I'm not doing the things I love like performing what I've spent years perfecting, I can get in to a funk. I am aware that my largest lesson in my career and life is to find what keeps me inspired on my off time when I'm not performing.
Man, when I get up there and play, and even after I play, time stops for me. I feel like I'm getting to a point with performing where I can more deeply embody what I am saying in my songs. It is certainly a high.
All I can say from experience. As an individual, we need to find a way to do what our deepest hearts desire is and keep doing it until that is all your are doing in your life. And when your in a funk, remember how you felt when you do what you love so you can use that memory of the high to motivate you to move.
I hope someone reads this.
