1st November 2016 - Spring Forward .. Fall Forward
I was on the phone to a friend in Melbourne this morning.
1st day of Summer and raining a lot. He's Irish so may not have used exactly that phrase.
He was commenting on the videos I took of the Comhaltas tour.
In a very roundabout way this got me thinking about things. Sort of a breadcrumb of Seasons .. time .. change .. music .. what direction does this change have ..
Maybe when the calendar gives you a change like a birthday or new years you think about where you are and where you're going.
So, I asked, where is it that I want to go with this?
I asked the question two days ago around thinking of yourself as being the person you want to be. Do I have a vision for this? Do I know what I want? Am I playing tunes in my sitting room? Am I literally walking into Pat Olwell's workshop to collect a flute? Am I playing in sessions?
A couple of years ago I asked a local pub owner if he would be interested in a few people starting a session in his pub. He was. Is that a Friday evening or a Sunday morning soon?
I think that if you have a better idea of where you'd like to end up you have a much better chance of getting there.
It's the start of Winter. Where do I want to be on the first of Spring?
