I have been given the opportunity to write the lyrics to a song!
I am playing it in the background as I write this to you guys in hopes that my writer’s block will break!
A friend that I made here, is a musician and teacher. And sent me a piece that he had written especially for me. He even called it “Finding Diane” probably due to the theme of all my pieces. I guess that I do write as if I need to be found, like Alice looking down the rabbit hole.
I have written about going back and finding pieces of me along the way. I know that I live in the past, I have a lot of regrets and am working on going back and getting the part of me that I left behind all those years ago, for once and for ALL.
I try to write so that others might learn from my mistakes.
I have been struggling to find the right place to even start.
I have a million beginnings but when I think that I have hit on something, and come back to it. It sounds cheesy when I read it.
I want to honor the beauty of the music that seemed so easy for him to write.
It is funny, because poetry is so effortless for me. It usually is the easiest thing for me to write. So forgiving and natural, as if it is a part of me. But this is all about math and cadence and I want to say it all in different places where it doesn’t seem to fit.
I haven’t ever had this problem before. Even when I was younger, it didn’t take too long for me to write what I wanted. And I have written songs before. Several. I guess I worked on those too for a while. But I didn’t feel that they would be as judged, maybe… or maybe it is just because I am so much older and judge myself more now.
Today, I thought maybe if I wrote you all, I could find the part of me that is holding back, and hoarding the words I need!!!!!
I will be back once I have it!!
