“And then it happened: The moment when inspiration met skill level, dreams met commitment and experience. It happened last week after finishing a song that I’ve been trying to write for years: The moment that I knew I was on the right track. The moment when I knew that it hadn’t all been some wild teenage pipe dream hatched one night when I needed a life track to choose. It happened, and I have arrived in the territory of living my dreams at last.
Tears rolled down my face as I beat my rattle, and I sang the words to the song that had brought back my spirit. In that moment it didn’t matter if anyone else would ever hear it, because it was mine, and it had given me the gift I’d been longing for; the joy of singing it, and the feeling of connection is all I will ever need.
I am finding my voice at last, and the future awaits my pen, and voice, and song.”
