Musical Temperance
(credit: Compassionate Revolt)

My angsty and musical blog series, Musical Temperance, debuted over at Compassionate Revolt today. My first piece borrows from a creative non-fiction article I did for the Hawaii Women’s Journal a few years ago and it’s funny how much (and yet, how little) has changed since I first wrote it.

I believe in the perfect mix. Yes, I was one of those dorky teenagers who made mix CDs and now I’m one of those dorky adults who make Spotify playlists. A good mix should feel like a bouquet of music, with thoughtful complementary songs intended for a specific person.

Here’s my first mix for Musical Temperance. It’s about beginnings, growing up, and all of that angsty stuff that exists in between.

It’s Time

I find all kinds of excuses to not write: I don’t have time, I’m way too tired, Buster is lying on my arm and I can’t move, I’m suffering from crippling writer’s block, and OOH LOOK SOMETHING SHINY.

Today, however, I’m going to sit in front of my computer until something comes out of me.
