Indeed, a Rain of Frogs is now officially a week old, and like so many of my other projects, unencumbered by anything resembling a design. I truly do need to extricate myself from this quagmire of uncreative thought I seem to be stuck in.

I’m working on it. I’ve been considering taking a beginners drawing course at a local art store. Do I need art instruction? Hell no. I’ve had more than enough. What I need is to relearn how to see things with fresh eyes. I’ve also been gigging with musicians I don’t normally play with, in hopes of finding something new and infectious that I can take home with me.

But in terms of hard results, I’ve got nothing. Not yet, anyway. The hardest part of this for me has been accepting that I’m in a creative jam. I’ve done it though. I’m in a creative jam. I’m NOT producing anything of merit, musically, visually or literally.

They say admission is the first step to recovery.

Good gods lets hope so.

What you need to do is hang around some wacky kids, and bring some sugar, paper and crayons.
