Finding it difficult to remain away from the real world and spending the time I want to spend in the ministudio. Real life never stops demanding. In the past I used to do my demos at that remote Led Zep cottage (Bron-y-aur), no phone, no TV, just the occasional ledzep fan peering through the window. Had another place I used to go to in Cornwall, which didn't have the added entertainment of dazed'n'confused ledzep fans lost in the woods, but had the extra bonus of a heated pool. Here, at home, there's always stuff going on and I have to make a real extra effort to switch off. The Drugstore gig is coming up and bringing with it its delightful carousel of rock'n'roll paraphernalia, and me being its proud custodian, have a fair share of stuff to deal with. Today, I have restricted a friend's visit to 1 hour only (will have a timer at hand). Tomorrow, doing a photoshoot. Will try to squeeze in every possible second into recording the demos. I'm excited, and just want to get to the day when I'm uploading some of my music here. I never really thought of myself as a songwriter, but instead, as a storyteller of sorts, but for stories to come to life, they need to be told and need to be shared with someone else, otherwise they remain vague expressions of an unfulfilled possibility.
