i caught the tail end of cat stevens' majikat dvd on pbs last week. lately i've also been obsessed with his songs "peace train" and "on the road to find out." (especially the latter, that's the story of the last 10 years of my life)

i go through phases where i want to write and perform music so badly it aches... i'm there right now in a current fit triggered by the aforementioned majikat (even though it's a concert with magicians. the random 70's people).

i have so many things to say (duh - i blog up to 4 times a DAY) but i feel so inadequately prepared for give voice to them, and my lyrical ability is mediocre at best. i am much better with prose than poetry. and it is so frustrating not to be able to put the things i want to say into song.

i feel much like salieri must have felt. and it sucks.

i know what you mean, except for i'm an accomplished song writer. in the sense that i've accomplished writing words on a piece of paper and calling the result a song. yeah, i'm terrible.

anyway, you're bound to come up with 1 hit song if you keep writing. i can feel it!

thanks. that's nice! (the positive thinking, not the statement of songwriting terribleness)
