I visited the doctor’s this week concerning a never ending, skin rash on my shin. By never ending I mean that it doesn’t seem to go away, not that it is all over my shin. That still makes it sound worse than it is. It’s just a few marks really, but its longevity has brought me back to the professionals. It seems we both use google to check the rash. I’ve been given some more, stronger cream to try. I have also been booked in for a blood test in order to eliminate any other possibilities. Though I think the blood test is more to do with ‘let’s keep an eye on that high cholesterol you tested for last time and for which you haven’t had a follow-up blood test for’ – I am reading between the lines.
This week has included reviewing April and planning May. This has meant spending a fair bit of time with my nose in my journals and planners. As such I have again noticed I have far too many journals. However, if they are keeping me organised I won’t complain too much. And I now feel set-up and ready for May… let the creativity commence. Oh and yes, the creative field notes…
The week has been good from a musical perspective. I finished ‘A Song for Beltane’, uploaded it to The Crypt on Patreon and went live there. I have a list of songs to work on for the month. A mixture of ideas and styles. Plenty of new tracks that I will push out in the coming weeks.
Refilling the creative well
Got around to watching T2. I liked Trainspotting and T2 was good too. It does feel a bit like watching a road traffic accident, but it did top up the well. Also saw The White Crow, a film about Rudolf Nureyev. Something a little different to top up the well.
I am still reading Life 3.0 by Max Tegmark. Some great speculative discussion and debate around the future of AI and human development. I sometimes catch myself with a wry smile as I notice similar themes to early Asimov robot stories. We have caught up with science fiction in so many ways.
