6:00 a.m. Let’s go.

black-and-white

I often can’t put a finger on what drives me to create. What force drags me to the studio at 6 a.m.? What pulls me out of bed in the middle of the night to jot down a story idea or melody? I have always had something to say or show. Most of it, if not all of it, has been only my flawed attempts to represent truth. But it’s been a story that has unfolded over the course of my life. I just follow it, as it keeps me busy and well-worked.

  3. ..”as it keeps me busy and well worked” … Makes me wonder about how this makes him feel. Is this deeply satisfying or uncomfortable? Is it expanding or contracting?
    Would love to know what else he says…

  6. Does that guy look like he’s leaning back too far? Looks off balance. Or maybe I need to check my glasses.

  7. I think the hard part is saying, “Yes” to that impulse–to jot a note in the middle of the night, or in the doctor’s office. To stop at the junk shop because its calling you. Sometimes it can be a wee voice.
