Head, Meet Wall

Two days with not much to show for it.  To be honest, today was pretty discouraging.  I tried to keep working through the fog but eventually I just realized nothing good would come from my efforts; I was just banging my head against the wall.  It’s a combination of many things: having to watch the kids this afternoon, a messed up back, and everyone in the house just not feeling 100%. 

I am learning to not force the issue when it comes to creative work.  I naturally hate leaving anything unfinished, so setting a project down when it’s nowhere near done is insanely difficult for me to do.  But this project deserves to be done right and I’m not rushing it.  Maybe covering the behemoth of Ferguson as one of my first shows wasn’t wise, but I’m willing to throw it out if it doesn’t turn out well.  

I can’t help but wonder how many people are even interested in Ferguson anymore.  It’s been a year and a half since Micheal Brown died.  But most people don’t know much about the Michael Brown shooting except for what they saw on the news when it was still bringing in the ratings.  By the time real information about the incident was made public, it wasn’t news anymore.  At the very least, Police Academy listeners will be informed on one of the most influential incidents in recent law enforcement history. 

Tomorrow is a new day, another gift, a fresh start.
