Movement has been one of the few constants in my life, and I always feel a great sense of optimism when I set off to a new place.
My favorite rhymes are sort of half-rhymes where you might just get the vowel sound the same, but it's not really a true rhyme. That gives you far more flexibility to capture the feeling you're trying to express. But sometimes it's best not to have any rhyme.
I went right from wunderkind to washed up. Old. Been around too long. That's just the way I feel. That's my internal dialogue.
It's dangerous to buy into praise and criticism for what you do when you're trying to present your music to people. I don't ignore it completely, but I don't dwell on it too much.
