Face the Beast

It has taken me a few days to absorb and let go of the news this week of more treatments, still open
ended.  I admit, I have been down......but today was cold, this morning the sun was shinning, this evening snow flurries and I am in a much better frame of mind.
It helped that Rick and I have had a really good practice session, getting ready for our gig next Friday.

Music truly soothes my soul.....and performing forces you into the now.  To play guitar and sing, you have to be present......the mind cannot wander.  Being in the now, the present is where I always need to be, but it is so easy to project, to have expectations and concerns about the future.
There are days you have to allow yourself to wallow, but then that has to end, you find the strength
to face the beast and move on.

This week I faced the beast, wallowed, and moved on.  I hope you all did the same.
Do something fun tonight, do something peaceful tomorrow and always......choose happiness.
