There was a book that was being read. It was alright. It could contain many things but to find that out, it needed to be read, all of it. Maybe not the Forward.

The book was written by Eckhart Tolle and was called “The Power of Now” and comes recommended from many people.

That was that for that day.

Things are getting better

I feel like I’m growing as a person. I know that’s a mad thing to say but I feel that I’m more of a deliberate person. I take my time and mull things over.

There have been a few times today that a thought has crossed my mind to wind up my wife Andy probably annoy her but I didn’t. Usually when these thoughts enter my head I just act upon them.

It’s nice. It’s like I’m having a proper break from myself.

I’m listening to David Bowie “Blackstar”. It’s a great song.

Sleep talking

My mind is very active when I go to sleep. This is the second night running where I have been woken up by my wife because of my ramblings as I sleep. I’m not sure why I do this but last night apparently I said “I can’t be bothered to make a cup of tea”. I then woke up and my wife gave me a cuddle before I went back to sleep. I have such an understanding wife.

I haven’t got much planned for today. I want to practice the guitar, maybe record some of it. In a perfect situation I want to maybe continue writing a song I started years ago. It’s called “Thirty Something Nothing”. I started to write it when the idea of being 30 years old seemed like a distant thing. Now I’m 31. The song is about someone who is in their thirties and they’ve still not achieved anything concrete. I remember when I was writing it that I was worried in case it happened to me.

Now thinking about it, I don’t think that I can write it, at least not in the way I wanted to. It might come across as sneery as I know a few 30+ year olds who still live with their parents etc. I’ll have to rethink it.

Doing and being

I had such a busy day yesterday that it has been a nice break today. I’ve got like a proper, full blown day off tomorrow.

I got a new guitar strap that came today. I have attached some authentic 90s badges to it too. Like, they couldn’t be more 90s.

I’m looking forward to doing stuff, mainly guitar practice as well as meditating.
