Yoga isn't filling the Creative Space

I started writing songs again.

The gap? about 4 years.

For the past 9 months I've been putting in lyric writing time every weekend at a local coffee shop. For the past 4 months or so it's been only in French. Just for sh%ts and giggles ya know? To see if I could.

I can.

I wrote a song in Acadian French. My first one ever. I transcribed it lovingly in my songbook. A small book that holds all the songs I've written since grade 10. Dated, with chords. I'm not really a computer song storage kinda gal.

I'd show you evidence but....

I lost my songbook.

It's like it never existed. Poof.

Thank goodness I recorded a few of my songs and was forced to type and print out a few of my favourites.

The Acadian song? Not so lucky.

One day (when we move) the songbook Troll will hopefully give it up from her clutches.

I'm actually wondering if this should be an opportunity to invest in a new (larger) songbook and to start fresh. To really give'er on the song writing front. Not to get a record deal, or become famous, just to fill a need. A creativity hole Yoga isn't solid enough to fill.

My tarot confirms what I already knew:

I've got way better songs waiting to be made.

  1. Bummed to hear you lost it but glad you're taking it in stride! Good thing you had those few recorded! Love that your writing again---definitely sounds like a great release :)

  2. I hope that troll gives your songbook back! I've been feeling pretty stagnant creatively as well. Maybe making friends with my tarot decks again would be a good start. :)

  3. AWESOME!! I haven't picked up a guitar since last summer at a bonfire. I think it's fabulous that you;re writing - go girlfriend! Sometimes our creative juices need to follow another path for awhile before returning us back to our path.
