Back to normal….in more ways than one.

Talking to Wendy after her week long California vacation opened my eyes to a woman more determined and more focused than anyone else in accomplishing one specific goal – MUSIC SUCCESS. I think her attitude, energy and talent have had quite a profound effect on me. You see, I was blessed with many musical talents, especially in songwriting at such a young age. But it’s a talent that I somehow squandered and lost over time. A series of life changing events changed all that and now I suddenly see myself pursuing music in a way that I’ve never experienced before. The biggest positive about this is that there are adult type things that we don’t learn unless we experience pain. And thankfully, a lot of pain equals hidden treasures for any artist.
So, getting back to Wendy’s musical goals, I’m more determined more than ever for us to succeed: her as an artist and me as a songwriter. I’ve rediscovered my love of playing instruments and channeling various forms of emotional energy and translating all that to writing songs. And as a bonus, last night I finally rediscovered an old confidence in my singing voice. Somehow I forgot that I actually sang professionally more than a decade ago and my voice was temporarily reduced to frog-like squeaks and sounds. Not anymore!
Wendy’s homecoming after a week long absence, and rediscovering my old voice after a decade long sabbatical, bring things back to normal….way long overdue.
