Sounds of silence



I didn't turn the power on in my studio today. I worked without the radio, the ipod, the lights. No electricity. Just me and the rooster, the bees, the birds, the wind chimes, the sunlight pouring in and the caterpillars crawling all around. I didn't turn on the lights or the TV in the house today either. Gerry wasn't around and here I was with the sounds of silence. I found myself working with a different rhythm. I worked much slower, more methodical, more thoughtful. Today I had a physical and mental cleanse day. I took a long walk this morning, drank lots of water all day, which I always forget to do, ate no sugar, no salt, no alcohol, no processed food, and no artificial sounds. It was blissful. Why do we need all of these distractions in our life? Nature provides such a nice soundtrack and gives us all the food we need without artificial ingredients. I am seeking a simpler life......
Here's what my studio was like today
peace ya'll.....

sweet- now turn up the tunes and rock out!
I do this often and love a day inside my head.
Other days I need the distraction.

This sounds like something I need to do when I'm really stressed about a big show coming up, like right now. Maybe for the rest of the day...

Hi everyone, I have decided to have a silent day in the studio at least once a week, it is really an interesting change and a different way of working! I highly recommend it!!
Thanks for the comments, love them!!!!

Yes. Amazing concept...I'm going to try it. There won't be actual silence in my house for another 20+ years (lots of kids, dogs, cats, etc.), but a media fast I could definitely handle (or could I???!). We shall see. :)
