It’s a good thing that I am blessed with big, sticking out Buddha ears because whenever I lose my head to anxiousness, at least my head can fly off or hover nearby instead of falling on the floor.
What’s even better is that with this in mind, there is no need for me to buy a drone… as much as I love all my gadgets.
There wouldn’t be anywhere to put it anyway plus I’m sure that licenses don’t come free or let alone… cheap!
With four plant-based steaks, my father’s style tomato salad down and leftover root vegetables being roasted in the oven as I began reflecting on another day…. I can say that my body is happy… which makes the rest of me feel pretty much the same.
It took me 4 hours... from 6:30 to 10:30am to download all 11 Thai karaoke songs from YouTube onto my phone’s app then convert them into m4a audio files…then ‘AirDrop’ them onto my laptop...and convert them online into MP3s… THEN send them off to the proposed sound engineer via the organiser of the local World of Love Festival.
I even had the time to rehearse them through once acoustically before making lunch at 12 and stuffing myself just after 1 pm.
It was worth it ….because I seem to be getting lazier when it comes to cooking but everything I’ve got in my fridge compartment is merely just leftover donated vegetables from Rachael.
Waking up at 6:30 and not going back to sleep was definitely worth it today as well as drinking lukewarm water for you know what.
The Kid’s alarm on her phone was going off from time to time and she would turn it off each time.
However, that didn’t effect me and just out of respect... I continued with my responsibilities as quiet and as efficient as possible without trying to get too distracted by friends and associates.
When she was finally awake, it was the usual experience of sharing random sounds and profound topics as well as giggles until after her dance with Mary Jane… which brought her back to Earth again.
Either I’m feeling sleepy because I woke up early or it’s because I haven’t had a caffeinated brew yet.
In fact... the last thing I want to do now is sleep.…for I fear it will ruin how smooth today’s ayurvedic flow has been going.
I don’t want to depend on caffeine either so that can only mean that I have a desire to drink some more water instead.
After getting today’s memoir out of the way, I suppose I will continue working on the next album…as I have been neglecting it….and leave rehearsing the Thai songs again for when The Kid has woken up.
I had a very good and productive Zoom meeting with Julian and Ant last night regarding the future of our music career together which resulted in me finally making my own laminated A2 sheet stuck together with sellotape and Blu-Tack on my wall and then with a whiteboard pen...transcribed the initial notes I made into reminders so that I can read them and not forget them whenever I need them.
Obviously, the thought of the meeting and feeling on top of things again...aided me in getting a good night’s sleep ready to take on the anxiety I had this morning of overthinking about my end of March gig…..
At least I am feeling more prepared now.
