I signed up for a free 6 week course on music composition from the University of Singapore. And then a free course on songwriting from Berkelee. I am reading a book that's basically a survey of different compositional approaches. I am working through some rudimentary piano exercises, scales--fundemental things, both classical and jazz.

I realize that my real life goal is to write concert music. I want to write symphonies, concerti, sting quartets, maybe even an opera. I want to write musicals and I know that would be fulfilling and fun. But I want tio be remembered as a "serious" composer. I want to do what moves me most.

So, while I do what I can to make more money, I am also doing everything I can to be better at what I do.

I am tired most of the time and my age is creeping up on me (you should see the gray), but I don't care. I have shit to do.

A dear friend gave birth just a few days ago. A dear friend who never thought she would ever have a child of her own. A dear friend who was the first person I had to support through a miscarriage. A D&C, what terrible letters. And now, there is this picture of one of the most beautiful people I have ever know, eyes closed, holding a dear, small, pefect person. And I am breathless every time I look at it.

I keep saying I am going to come back here.

And I need to. I need a place to write. To really write. Like I used to.

So, this LiveJournal will be my sketchpad. I have several things I am juggling. I want to keep a creative journal so I can be very transparent in the process of creatng my work. Poetry, stories, music, musicals, etc. I want to do a lesson blog. And I want to keep a jounal like I used to. Something literate and beautful.

So, I'll do this stuff here. And I'll start next.
