Sow an action and you reap a habit

It has been quite some time since my last visit here, the reason is that I have been busy working through final assignments for the semester. The semester was a battle at times but it was mostly under control thanks to my optimism and family. The only low point was the lack of composing and rendering of basic compositional sketches. I guess the words really do inform the practice after all. Interestingly, I have found rousing ideas and have been able to erect some cogent musical scaffolds, especially through interactions with colleagues. I’m still learning that as a lone wolf you still can maintain a deep focus, despite opening up to people about your research. It’s one of the newest things I’m beginning to see unfurl before me and I quite like it a lot. Arguing is the new black! Academic arguing of-course, it’s our bread and butter. So this is what we do, and this is what we feel. I have taken five days off from serious research. I will be back shortly.
