Diary week 2
Well it’s been a long week here for me, there is a delay in my diary because, I have been really busy this week with lots of other tasks, that’s the thing with music it kind of has its place in my life but this week it’s not really been on my full attention ,although I did clear my office /studio this week and ordered myself a new tablet as for 2 years been doing most things on my phone and I am sure it’s starting to affect my eye sight ! So I am really looking forward to setting it up and sorting all sites out as working on a phone is really hard to work out everything! I cleared my laptop that I’ve had for about 6 years and gave it to a friend , looking through all the things I’ve done and material things I have in my office in the loft, is like going back in time, it’s strange now how wires / leads / cds have all become almost redundant. what do you do with all these things? Make some crazy wall art or something i guess lol 😉
I have not got the heart to throw them away at moment, so there they sit waiting to be decided on , but I will have another clear out ,when I update my music computers some time maybe this year does depend on finances really and at the moment it’s not broken so why get something new, with a studio office build in front of me next year others things come first and with a year in the planning nice now to have a builder , so I am seriously excited about this starting in march, I’ve worked hard for this can’t wait to see myself in my new office by summer 2018 wow , better than sitting in rubble which has been the last year !
Song writing has been on my mind 10 to a dozen this week , I really sometimes beat myself up for hours as I miss creating, I miss working with people and I miss myself and I miss travelling , its so easy for life to just take you away from your art , through illness/ work for money/ tiredness / winter weather / you could use every excuses under the sun ,so sometimes I study artists in the art fields , people who just make art everywhere and this keeps my spirits high , thinking that there will be a time I can concentrate, but that time is not now, you just can’t do everything at once ,so in the meantime I do what I need to do and try not to get depressed or run down by it and keep positive for the future I guess that’s how I’ve always been, there is a book I read years ago I think it was called photology but don’t hold me to it , it was about visualising your dreams seeing yourself somewhere and then creating a pass to proceed it and forgive the people who are damaging or forgive yourself for being a nuance to others if indeed you are let and known you never wanted to be , we are but only one person with only so many hours of one day , I sometimes think robotic it’s the only way to dampen the creative flow because I can’t always leave that door open .
Also coming up this week I will be announcing some news on the publication of my stepping stones album that is available for download on itunes , so keep a watch out for this on my website and other sites … there could be a trip to the USA planned in the near future this I am excited about I’ve never made it west of the world yet !
I have many friends there though so may even go there anyways sometime ,but so many other things in front of me at moment a total upheaval of building works… but it will be worth it to sit in my office.. I already am thinking how I will set up, I will have a thinking wall for new songs and plans and maybe a little live lounge stage that would be fun ! I take some pictures before and after and when it all starts but its not that exciting taking pictures of builders bums , well some fun for some ! !
So that was my week really just a normal week of paper work and organising as well as moments of writing songs , working on one at the moment but I can’t tell you the title as it would kind of give it away what the songs about , think maybe today I get my guitar and write the lot as well as play around with my new Tablet , taking pictures and filming with it , such a better quality than my phone and laptop so thrilled , here are some pictures of my morning walk that I took with my phone the beauty of the end of November
Cheers To all new followers and hope you all have a lovely week until next write up next week. Emma Lock ! X
