I’m not the sharpest knife in the musician drawer. Disheartening. I wish I were better. If wishes made me play better… All I can do? Keep at it. In the last two years. I’ve gone from “I can’t do this, I’m quitting” to “I need to be better.” One foot in front of the other. If this were health, I’d advise that you never get better in a straight line- always many dips and rises. No dip, no rise. I do like the rise. Gotta live with the dips.
Altered states. Normal is a dryer setting. Adapting to life. Patient hacking. With the brilliant, hilarious, passionate Mighty Casey Quinlan. Life is good.
