My Songs

At the start of the day, the songs I write are written for me.  They serve as reminders for myself, they act as a journal, and they act as a release.

Is that selfish?  Maybe.  But it's the truth.  If I don't connect to it, how can I expect someone else to?  Isn't everything at some point or another selfish?

But at the end of the day, I hope that the songs I write serve as reminders or inspirations or a source of joy for others - or that the listener finds a kindred spirit in me as I feel for so many artists.  I hope that the listener can connect to whatever is going on in my life or mind or heart and that she can find whatever she needs to find.  I hope it's a positive thing, if I'm being honest.  But sometimes we need something else, and that's okay.

I've been working on a song called "The Scariest Monsters," and, despite its title, it's a song of hope.  I will be posting it tomorrow, and I hope you will enjoy it.
