Trying to source inspiration for everything that I am today, and perhaps beginning to find it.
Over the weekend I hung with a friend and we were listening to old songs from our childhoods: My Chemical Romance, Hoobastank, the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack.
We also listened to Yvette Young, who I haven’t heard of before. And this beautiful track evokes so much of what I felt growing up, and also brings me to the present.
For much of my life, I’ve abstained from doing things that bring me joy for one reason or another. I really like playing piano, but never focused on that because I sensed that it would become an obsession, and detract from other things I was interested in.
I’m sitting with that today, as the morning sunlight comes in through my window here in the Poconos.
