The In Between

I'm living in the In Between Space right now - I"m purposely not booking shows in Toronto because I'm working with my band; my band is still looking for a name; I"m trying to organize my life to make more space for my loves (family, music, friends, relationship); and I"m trying to navigate my "pay the bills" work without being too caught up in the politics of it and being detached enough from it that I can keep my focus on my craft. 

I"m juggling, I"m working hard, and I promise you I will have something to show for it in time. 

The In Between Space challenges me, my patience, my ego, my sense on accomplishment. I somehow forget to use this breathing space to breathe, and admitting it to myself might be even harder. I usually don't make new year resolutions but it looks like this could be a natural one. My new year's resolution is to create a life where everything has it's place and emphasis is placed according to importance. I resolute to breathe, and to not feel bad about it. I resolute to keep the important things important, and chalk the rest up to drops of water under the bridge. 

Let's see how this goes, shall we.....
