Well, after yesterdays ice storm and missing taxis and random bus schedules, it's ice to sit down in front of the computer, sip hot coffee, and work on music!
I've been moving slowly but surely to focus on ambient/cinematic/soundscape again, that seems to be what I like to compose and perform, and I've gotten back into listening to my ambient roots music (Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Tangerine Dream). I've purchased a QuNexus keyboard (super small and insanely programmable) and an EWI USB wind controller! Yes, I've played trombone and recorder in the past so it's not as weird as it sounds (heh).
Not a lot of writing right now, I'm trying to decide if I'm ever going to be A Famous Author or if I should focus on lyrics and poetry like I have for most of my life (heh round 2). I feel like I'm seriously swimming upstream when I sit down and try to crank out a novels worth of words, even short stories give me a lot of pushback.. but I can sit down in front of Acid Music Studio and have a complete track out in a coupe of days!
Maybe I'm not cut ut to be a writer of prose. IT just doesn't come naturally, and my writing teacher says that past 5000 words I just lose interest. She's right, of course, but it's nice to get validation from someone outside my head.
Much thinking to do.
