Memories are an excellent conduit for creativity, whether it be for actors, scuptors, or musicians.

In the same way that an actor accesses his or her emotions through memory, so too can a singer bring forth rich material as inspiration, as subject matter, as an entry to places where we can transport a listener or an entire audience.

Tonight, I revisited places, emotions and states of mind from this past week, from the bitttersweet to the sublime. 
The trick is to not let oneself get distracted from feeling into the memories. When the mind steps in to correct or judge, always come back to the memories and the feelings around them. In fact, don't worry about the sounds you are making... just continue making them as you focus on the feelings

It is easier said than done, but I will practice what I preach, and report my findings.
