It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on here.
My creativity has been slightly stunted due to life’s difficulties — COVID-19, familial issues, schoolwork, financial strain, and the list goes on — but a break from school and some time spent with close friends have provided some respite.
I’m feeling more optimistic and finding joy in the little things: cooking, playing with my kitten, smiling at the sun, and journaling daily.
I’m also developing a new passion, funded by the Gould Center again: to learn the electric guitar.
My six-stringed baby arrives on January 14, which means a lot of my current learning and practice has been spurred by my imagination.
I air play along to some sexy Classic Rock riffs.
I’ve been reading and watching videos about music roots, intervals, scales, steps, octaves, and semitones.
And I admire Jimi Hendrix’s guitar play closely, along with other rock gods’.
My anticipation is building.
And I am very excited to share some covers and at least one original song with y’all by the end of this month.
Stay tuned (pun intended).
