Today I found myself just enjoying the new track I’ve been working on. I think that’s when you know that you have something. I sat down to push some more creativity into it’s canvas, and found myself just enjoying the song. I still managed to improve on the overall sound, and added something extra.
I’ve been using a version of this image for my Psalm 88 blog posts. It’s a photo I took in my back yard. When I look at it I see something growing where nothing should be growing – on a rock. It’s a picture of solitude and emotion, much like what the author of Psalms 88 could have been expressing.
