October in New England

This morning I snuck down into the studio and worked on a new recording. I spent about an hour trying to get the right guitar part. I couldn't find the right notes and I couldn't find the right sound, so I looked out of the basement window. I saw the sun shining on a bright yellow tree.

Sometimes you have to step away and consider a new direction for a song. So I flipped all of the switches and turned everything off. I put on my sneakers and stepped out into the best day ever.

Sounds like a nice morning all around; I agree, sometimes you just have to let those things sit and not force it. I wonder if you get this too, where at some point you just know, "alright, all the mojo is gone for this song/part/day, time to take a break and come back to it."
