Thought of The Day: If people show you they don’t care – believe them. Go where the love is! Don’t waste time.
At Nate’s home for a creative session for “Bridges.”
No illusions or delusions – doing me in the now and grateful to still be doing what I love in ways that bring rejuvenation to us all.
April has remained a month of creativity, writing – stepping away, gathering thoughts and coming back to new ideas for my solo work as well as SRL’s “Bridges.” I can say the collaborative give and take in the process of making this record is cool. We don’t agree upon everything, but always come to a meeting of the minds and always end up in a really good place – we’re a real group.. the awesome thing is in our differences (i.e. I think this song could be stronger, or I think we should do.. whatever it is) the respect of each other and the laughter that comes out of it all in the end is something we’re really enjoying. One of the things that came out of the last session is both Rosero and Nate saying “you sometimes downplay yourself too much..you’re J O D Y W A T L E Y and maybe because maybe in the past you’ve been around people who haven’t always respected or lifted you up..we do.” That meant so much and they were right. These men are awesome and such a gift on this journey. It was fun as well because Nate really laid out the food situation..when we’re at Rosero’s it’s a running joke he never has any food.
