day 102: led zeppelin
We’re recording Led Zeppelin drum samples. This probably sounds fun. It is not fun. We’ve spent days and days feeling rejected; not by anyone or anything, but by the simple truth that to create a copy of greatness is by definition an impossible task.
inspiration feels like freedom now. There is no need to mimic, to capture, to bottle to sell. Selling comes after creation;
inspiration sneaks up on us. One minute I’m doing whatever it is I do, the next I’m breathing: into a heart exploding, eyes wide then close to rest in the comfort of joy. Thank God,
or you. It doesn’t matter,
so long as I am thanking that I am in this world: where time stopped to catch me and I didn’t even know that I was falling down; where nothing could ever stop me from feeling love; where nothing could ever stop love from seeping through us every chance it gets; where nothing can change that it could take us our whole lives (and maybe not even then) to understand that all we need is love is true…
