It’s preternaturally quiet out here on the western front. I like that word “preternaturally”. I’ve never used it before, but it’s seeming to fit right now.
In 2 days from now, I’m going to be recording my first live CD, a project I’ve been preparing for, for over a year, and now time is standing still. I’ve been so busy the past few weeks, dealing with so many things now that Kickstarter has funded and everyone’s ready to go.
I was a total busy-bee (btw – another word I’ve never used) about it all this morning – stressing, packing, making phone calls that I thought where important but of course no one’s called me back yet but note to self: give it a break it’s only been 3 hours for them even though time is standing still for me right now and it seems like 3 weeks. Every minute expands to 100.
I need to get better at not putting so much weight on things. Be in the moment. Be in the moment. But this time it feels so important, so potentially life changing. Everything’s different this time.
People will call back. Everything will work out. Life will move on. I know that. But right now, kinda preternatural.
