I so don't want to write this. I'm not ready. I'm still decompressing from a gnarly 2017 and yet - if I don't write - if I don't publish - then nothing happens - and I sooooo want something to happen.
So this is me - showing up - doing the work - even if I'd rather be curled up on the sofa.
And so - what are we listening to today?
A movie score for sure - but the score of a battle - this one's from Gladiator but you could choose just about any battle score for today's purposes.
In essence - put it on - gird your loins and fucking get down to it.
Let the energy of the trumpets carry you along - let the strings give you time to breathe - this is a bloody battle - and the only way to win is to show up and write.
You with me?

About the Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.
