    Thrilled And Yet Sometimes Discouraged...

    Oh my gosh I'm so stoked about music again!

    For years I've felt like I just lost it, like my passion just broke inside of me. These last two months have just been fantastic though! I've been playing every day and enjoying every minute of it, even the stuff we often think of as drudgery! I forgot how much freer I felt...
