New Song - Inspiration

Today I will write 2,000 words
Today, I will write that song
Today, I will...
Do you see where I'm going here?

I had a similar experience during the writing process of my new project "Pen Voyage Chapter One; Singing for Change" and after a few hours of nothing but blank paper, I decided to take a walk.

I got to the park and took a seat and that's when the idea for the song 'inspiration' came to me.

Isn't it amazing how sometimes you are waiting on inspiration to come to you and nothing happens and other times you aren't looking for inspiration and it comes chasing after you?

I have always been fascinated by creativity. I truly believe that the 'magic' happens when we connect with something or someone beyond ourselves. I love to call that moment, divine exchange.

"I am yours, you are mine" (from the song 'inspiration')

My relationship with creativity is what I have tried to put in a couple of verses hoping it resonates with everyone that hears it, I really do.
