#songwritingsunday: "Bad Case of Sadness," or, the lesson of a work in progress.

What happens when your voice is tired and you are tired and it is hot and you also committed to finishing a song? You finish the song and it takes you over 10 hours and you just deal with the plight of sharing a "work in progress." :)

I'm excited to share this new piece titled, "Bad Case of Sadness," which is now among my favorites. It took a lot longer than my usual speed-writing push, maybe due in part to the pressure of perfecting something I love.

The breakthrough for me in committing to sharing this draft, however, was to remember: every piece is & can be a work in progress. By showing my work-in-progress, and hopefully future improvements, I'm reminded to be OK with wherever I'm at, whenever I get there. It makes me be open to the magic of feedback and new inspiration. 

If you're in NYC and you want to hear its live debut, join me at the Sidewalk Cafe this Thursday at 10PM!
