Every once in a while, I get into a different musical mood. Driving to Chick-Fil-A for lunch today, I had one of those moods. Browsing for a CD to take with me, I grabbed a disc by Starsailor. I'd heard Silence Is Easy, but hadn't given Love is Here much good listening time. My best music appreciation time is when I'm in the middle of something else and just need some background to occupy my ears and that little possibly-ADD corner of my brain. And I have to admit, they're good. Not that it's grudging admiration, more that it's something that by rights I should have known sooner. I know I had opportunities. Maybe I didn't like their first single. I dunno.

But the other thing that happened was a flash of inspiration. A piece of song, a piece of lyric ... nothing I heard on the radio and nothing I recognized ... something all mine. Writing it down was an imperative, and thankfully I have several pens and several gas receipts in my car and handy from the driver's seat.

Guess it's time I get that guitar I've thought about from time to time. I've got enough music in me that it shouldn't be too hard ... I just need to wrap up a few other things. Make that spare time for myself. Between that and assembling my pirate ship model, that will give me some more physically interactive things to do in the coming months. I have a feeling that March will be a more active month for me. Just a hunch. Don't think it'll happen much sooner, but it might start. We'll see. We'll see.
