The impossibility of February
Why does February seem impossible? Today feels like a cup of Earl Grey tea gone cold while you were off busy doing other things. I have a Rolling Stones song stuck in my head and I am staring at a photograph my father took of two lambs in a field who are staring back at me. I think I would rather be barefoot in a field right now than feeling blank and barefoot in the studio. Too many things in my brain right now and I keep trying to tell myself to get out of my head and onto paper.
I saw this taped up in a friend's studio: "K.I.S.S = keep it simple stupid." Not very eloquent but quite true.
