The recent prompts have not inspired me – I know that’s part of the challenge and the whole point of the daily prompt.
I didn’t feel right writing my own eulogy, so close to losing a friend. The music in my life is also a hard subject.
Freewriting I am happy with, have journals full of it.
I have just spent a few more hours researching, I know I will feel better if I go to bed having written something.
So here it goes, 10mins….
Real-time moments captured forever in black and white footage weaved into some late night documentary. The types of
programmes I never used to watch, before I met him. I have found out so much more about people in popular culture this way. Found out things I would never have otherwise known. You talk about your dreams as the music fills the room. We have been close to the edge of your dream, with the help of smoke-screens and magic.
I always admire band documentaries that trace the success and pitfalls, it helps me realise that there is a whole story behind every ‘Gold’ award and album. Just like Abraham Lincoln they have had to pursue their desires until they came true. It is the same for me and you, the secret is to keep on striving forwards, making sure that you don’t let a setback throw you off track. Friendly. Commercial. Wanted. How does it sound to you own mind when you read it? You may not have to sell out. You may just have to be patient.
A waiting game. A game of survival. Dress yourself in an armour of self-belief and propel yourself forward. Ideas may not grow on trees, they do exist in the real world though, go out and find them. Create your own opportunities, breathe life into your dreams.
