It's cooled down for the moment. Music just shuffled to Keith Richards and the Winos.
My wife has a fractured foot.
Just finished making some revisions to the Limits sequence. Still don't have the energy for a return to Appearances at this point. Need some steeping time I think.
I'm not learning guitar how "I'm supposed to be learning." I'm learning how I feel capable of learning. I'm learning in pieces, trying to think about patterns and how they can be enlarged (in ways that make sense to me).
Today I was obsessively playing backwards and forwards the E minor pentatonic scale and mixing in a few things--just to see what I could find out. Simple discoveries which I can remember are very important to me in this context.
I'm looking for an alternative way to think and feel art. It's taken me around 40 years to become a marginally competent poet. I'm not going to have 40 years to pursue the guitar; and, anyway, poetry comes first as far as I'm concerned.
But...I'm locked in on the guitar to a degree that surprises me. I practice most days. Sometimes I have 2 or 3 practice sessions a day.
