Single Step

Confucius, or Lao-tzu, or one of those smart guys said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” So often with music I feel like where I want to go is so far away that it seems useless to try. However, I also believe that any big accomplishment is comprised of countless small decisions, efforts, and risks. On the docket this week of my “first step of a thousand mile journey” is joining ASCAP (a songwriting/publishing rights organization), meeting with a drummer to work on songs for the album, and going back to the bay for a few shows. I want to learn to approach these and similar tasks with an attitude of curiosity, playfulness, and enthusiasm, but too often I find myself freaking out about details or doing it right. Whichever way I approach it, I acknowledge that I am on my way.
