Discipline. Practice. Belief.

When you’re not writing on deadline or for an already established gig,  then this is what it takes to get to the keyboard…for me.

One of the dangers of working online for most of the day is similar to watching any other screen for too long–it flattens out humanity.  Everything has a gloss to it in some way., whereas real humans are so often messy,  coming apart around the edges, fragile, layered, so very beautifully imperfect.  Maybe that’s why I prefer the gesture drawing, the blurry lines…and fragmented theater, literature, even music…  Sometimes prose, in all its lovely form and glory, puts a sheen over the beautiful “imperfection” of the lived experience…

When layered with myriad parts,  music is an art form that engenders the layers of human experience–getting those melodies and harmonies at the same time…

I’ve always wondered what makes “melody” melody,  and “harmony” harmony?  Is the human ear tuned to certain notes and chords in different ways?  what gives?
