Music, to me, is one of the greatest things in creation. There just isn’t anything else out there that affects me the way it does.

Megan Stockman by David Bickley Photography

We’ve talked before (not too long ago if I remember correctly) about inspiration and what pushes you to grow either in yourself or in your work. Rather than dig to see what I said then…I’ll say it again. Music is what I go to. Of course I look around at visual art as well, but I have yet to find a painting or a photo that moves me the way a song can. Of course I’m not referring to all music. Beiber-Fever means nothing to me…yet take a song like Ray Lamontagne’s “Trouble” or Maverick Sabre’s “I Need” and my mood shifts completely.

This morning I woke up and wasn’t in the state of mind I wanted. I was sleepy and sore from the night before so naturally the last thing I wanted was to be awake…Jackson’s “Speed Demon” and “Dirty Diana” took care of that one on the way to church. In fact the 25th anniversary “Bad” album was all I was listening to on the way there and back.

All good except for a near wreck due to in-car dancing.

Don’t roll your eyes at me, you do it too.

Yes, you do.

Anyway, I’m back out the door again.

See you tomorrow,
