I started journaling recently and am really enjoying it. It’s hard to find time in my busy schedule to just sit down and write, and it feels selfish, but it’s so very rewarding. It’s so much easier to focus when you can empty what’s into your head on paper. And I suspect it’s going to be interesting when I read back on this later in life.
I went to my fall recital yesterday! I played one piece I wrote and then an Irish jig with a variation that I also wrote. The performance was in a church so the acoustics were incredible and everyone did really amazing. I got lots of ideas for new pieces. I also had an orchestra concert and competition on Thursday. Now that all my performances are done, for the time being, that gives me more time to be creative with my music and play what I enjoy. I’m working on a new piece with two cellos and a guitar that will hopefully follow an epic storyline.
