Writers end up writing about their obsessions. Things that haunt them; things they can’t forget; stories they carry in their bodies waiting to be released.

Number three: Don’t be nervous. Work calmly, joyously, recklessly on whatever is in hand.

Is it time for me to say “I need to go now” and for it to be true? Is it time to forget today, and yesterday, and maybe even tomorrow, and leave? Is it time to get in the car and drive far away, into the hills like I want to? Is it time to take only the bare necessities and hike into the wilderness where the trees, plants, animals, and waters are almost untouched? Is it time to feel peace? Is it time to feel free?

I could hear my heart beating. I could hear everyone’s heart. I could hear the human noise we sat there making, not one of us moving, not even when the room went dark.

If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.

This semester I will be carrying this giant textbook around with me 4 days a week. Its 2960 pages not counting appendixes and preface. The pages are so thin and delicate I will probably end up ripping it.
Welcome to the English department! 

Ugh, I miss this textbook. I took an English Literature course a couple years back and this was the text we used — it’s heavier than it looks and the pages really are dangerously delicate, but I loved it like you wouldn’t believe. So much incredible literature held within.

"People are more used to seeing men who are masters at an instrument than women. When people say, ‘Oh, she plays like a dude,’ it’s usually dudes who are the ones saying it. They’re saying, ‘Oh, she’s as good as us.’ Of course, that’s a stupid statement. It’s totally stereotypical to say, ‘We have an advantage on this, and if anyone else can do it well, it’s only because they’re like us.’ I think more men are starting to learn that this attitude is totally hollow and based in imagination. As more women are involved in music, this kind of thing gets said less and less."

Esperanza Spalding | singer, jazz bassist, and composer

This lady is a major source of inspiration for me. Her talent as a bassist is more than enough to wildly impress me by itself, but then she opens her mouth to sing and it’s almost more than I can handle.

Bought my first Moleskine notebook today! Time to write some new tunes.
