Summer.

Standard

It’s so nice when the weather is good and the sun actually provides warmth ๐Ÿ˜›

Seems to me like the sun is just for show in these parts ๐Ÿ˜€

Today I’ve been practising for the fundraising concert I’m doing for one of the local churches.

I’m a bit overwhelmed by my 3rd album, since there is so much happening musically in there. I’ve now decided to add even more to it, and I’ve also had some new ideas with more parts that I want to add on things I’ve already recorded…

(You can support what I’m doing here: My Patreon)…

Creativity and having lots of ideas can be very overwhelming at times.

I have lots of ideas for illustrated books as well, there’s no end…

It is interesting how someone like Jordan B.Peterson is running around the world preaching to people that they need to clean up their rooms and react to things properly, I wonder what his take on creativity would be?

Creative individuals write and create when they are upset, which means that they don’t really sort out the source of what makes them upset a lot of times. Creatives are also notorious for never cleaning their room or atelier as well ๐Ÿ˜›

Apparently you should clean up your room before you can save the world or create something ๐Ÿ˜›

Reminds me of this guitar expert I tried to take lessons from ages ago who claimed that: “you can only create if you know all the theory and techniques out there;” which is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life, not to forget this one:”If someone tells you what to create, then you’ll be super productive.” Needless to say, we didn’t see eye to eye….Creativity should never be boxed in or know limitations, unless you are working on something that is “made to order” or whatever, creativity is like water, it is all over the place, and if it is dammed up it will just explode at one point or the other. You might experience tsunamis of creativity. I normally work on multiple songs simultaneously in different genres…

Anyway….

Here are some pictures of me doing nothing…..

I’m guessing this is awesome, since blogging about nothing makes you cool.

  1. OMG! Is that a Commander in Chief Mug? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sometimes the greatest creative inspiration comes while doing absolutely nothing. I have discovered for myself that I really only wanted to rip incredible leads and walk away from it like it never happened. (lol) So I got rid of my mess of guitar pedals, plugged a Strat into a Princeton, walked in to a blues club and blew the roof off the joint, took a shot walked out, and to this day people still talk about it.

    I don’t even really play blues but whatever…

    Point is I guess, music is like a river that flows in that moment only, if we are able to tap into the river we become a conduit for that river to flow out through us and what was once theoretically possible or predicted, becomes actual.

  2. I am a dreadful hoarder and it has got really bad. However I think I am doing okay as I try to write bit and bats of things and have been doing a spot of crafts so I too am being creative. My OCD thinking has been for years along the lines of “When I sort this mess out I will be able to create”. The mess has got worse than ever and I consider it to be a real achievement that I am able to ignore it to a degree. I will sort it out though a bit at a time. Love your pictures by the way they are fabulous.
