But sometimes, or maybe all the time, it’s the fight to clear a path through these tangles that helps me write the songs I do. I guess if I didn’t feel the whirlwind I wouldn’t hear the music.
What’s your ‘music’? What is the thing that helps you make sense of whatever might threaten to undo you? I think we all have those things - the unshapes, the times when things are hazy, confusing, and maybe scary. What is your outlet, your stabilizer, the thing that you do to help you get back on a clear path?
I know without God as my Rock I’d be more of a mess than I am. And my outlet happens to be music. It’s the thing that can calm me, help me see things in another light, put words or notes to feelings I would otherwise have a hard time explaining to myself, let alone anyone else. So, in an odd way I guess I’m thankful for the times of Unshape and Tangles, because it makes me reach up and out, and even though I can’t see through it all the time, I can touch not only the music but the One who created it.
