Day 5. Meaning
Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.
Campbell's quote is fitting because today something shifted. I'm starting to find some meaning at 7:30 in the morning. I'm not struggling as much to wake up and get out there, I'm excited to see where the experiment takes me and the sounds that are being created are a thrill. I am playing and exploring the meaning behind all of it, behind this time in my life right now.
Today I swing into creative mode with my djembe and everything feels a little bit looser.
Maybe because it's Saturday and I have more space to open up, explore and create?
As I find my rhythm, another visitor arrives to play. It's my friend Lisa. I feel grateful and energized with her being there. Without missing a beat, she sits down and grabs a shaker. Unfortunately, you can't see Lisa in the video but you can hear her playing. Lisa is officially in the groove pocket.
When I arrive home, I am inspired to add a few melodies against the video in Ableton Live, my music sequencer.
The meaning for me today is to create this right now, in this moment.
