Man, I like this one a lot. I’d say it’s the catchiest thing I’ve recorded thus far, but some friends disagree. This one has been around since 2012 or so, and I’d tinker with it on the piano from time to time but it wasn’t until last weekend that I decided to put it down.

The act of taking a song from a rough sketch to a fleshed out work is without a doubt my favorite creative hobby. I completely lost track of time working on this, and spent all of Saturday and most of Sunday in my home studio putting it down, improving it, trying different things, and overall just having the best time. That’s where I’m happiest.

If other people enjoy the end result, that’s a nice bonus. And getting recognition for something that came from you is always nice. But I’m thankful that this isn’t my livelihood right now, and I can write and record for me. If it pays someday, even better.

But even if it doesn’t, it’s not going to make me stop.
