Oh hai thar, 2014
Wow, this poor blog has been neglected since September. I posted a chant and then... I realized I had been focusing too much on trying to make the blog successful enough to monetize (I was nowhere close), and lost the enjoyment of blogging. So I decided to take a break from blogging and come back to it if and when the music and writing called to me again.
Lately I've been feeling like I want to get back into creative writing, and I want to start writing and posting my chants again. Other creative types will understand when I say I've started to get the "itch" to write again. To write those things that work their way up from my soul and need me to put their words to paper. To sing those things brought forth from within and put their melodies to a microphone.
I don't think I will be posting others' music very much anymore - probably just when I'm feeling inspired by it, or when it goes with a piece I'm writing, or somesuch. And I'm going to stop worrying as much about how having a popular blog, because let's face it, the audience for pagan bloggers is not nearly as large or enthusiastic about commenting as that for fashion and mommy bloggers. So I'm going to post for myself, and for any who choose to read - and stop worrying about the rest.
I have two chants sitting on the back-burner that I'd like to post soon. One is a few years old, and the other was written this fall after I went through something extremely traumatic (I'm still unsure if I want to share that story in such a public forum, so pardon my vagueness.) I also have a few pieces of writing about music that want to happen.
2013 was a year of changes, of love and hurt, of renewal. It was also a year of starting to find the core of who I am and how I want to practice my spirituality. So here we are in 2014. I've decided that my theme for this year is "building." Building a life with my sweetheart, building a home together in our new apartment, building my spiritual practice up from this core and into something even more vibrant and powerful than before.
What are you building in 2014?
