Hello folks! I am glad to see you stopping by. This is a blog where you will learn all about my daily life, exactly as it is and all about the things I do in order to find my inspiration. But I forgot to tell you what I do, which I think it’s the most important part when you are writing an ‘About me’ post at the start of a new blog. I am a singer and songwriter who spends most of his time doing what he loves best in small cafes. There is something about performing in front of a live audience that cannot be replaced by anything. I am not actually making big plans about the future, except that I want to continue to do what I love most for the rest of my life if that is possible.
If there is one thing that is truly a challenge for me at times is to find the proper inspiration for the songs I write. I know that anyone who has never tried their hand at a creative process cannot really tell you about how difficult it can be to find the right inspiration. I had friends telling me that writing songs is easy, but I know for a fact that they are the kind of people who never wrote a single line of a song in their entire lives. So, seeing that others could not help me that much, I decided to find better ways for inspiration.
What I found so far that works really great is practicing sports. Yes, you heard me. You might have expected me to say that I would like to smell the flowers, or visit the museums of the world, or watch sunsets, but this is not the kind of song writer I am. I prefer to be more energetic, less meditative, if I can say this, and I find that exercising has its merits when it comes to finding your flow as a creator.
Did you notice how big sports fans are always chanting when they are rooting for their teams? Their inspiration is drawn directly from the sports they like, and that is what motivates them to find the most beautiful songs to sing for their teams. However, I am more peculiar than them in that regard, because I actually use sports to make my brain find the best connections and the inspiration I am after that can only come from physical strain and conquering one’s limits.
