i’m in a space that is fragile. i wish i could indulge in my instincts to be far away where no one can contact me while i work on the new album. yet life is there right outside my door and people text and email and phone and there are daily responsibilities to take care of… things that pull me down to the ground. to be an artist of a certain kind, you must give all of yourself to what you are creating and you have to let everything else fall away and go unanswered, undone. i am trying hard to be alone in my head and in my heart and in my deep consciousness. if i don’t , i lose it all. no one and nothing will feed the artist but the art.
