What they say

They say silence is golden; John Cage claimed that silence doesn’t exist; Vader sang “the absence of noise does not mean silence”.

Either way; I’ve been rather silent with regards to my music, even though plans have come and gone. Something went missing, something I can’t put my finger on.

I have plenty of time to make music, but I just don’t and it annoys me. And then the circle starts to take shape. I get tired of it too quickly. I rarely record anything if I actually take the time, and when I do, it’s never as good as when I don’t record it.

New equipment has been bought, old has been sold; the hunt for the perfect(tm) machine/setup continues. Maybe that is part of the problem. Nothing has _that_ feeling that I’m after, and the music (making) suffers.

There are also releases waiting to see the light of day, but they don’t. Most of them are complete, just waiting to be burned, but something stops me. I have too many questions that I know the partial answers to.

As I was making dinner a few hours ago an idea popped into my head, it wouldn’t be hard to get started on it tonight, but again; something’s stopping me. Is it laziness? Or what?

I don’t know. We’ll see.
