> Hi Sean
> What you said about the change of mood being the creativity trigger was really interesting. The last few songs I've written (mainly rock / guitar stuff although I play the piano myself and write using the piano) have come to me when I've been upwardly inspired by lack of sleep and lots of loud music and then it was suddenly peaceful on the train on the way home. The sudden peace and relaxation when feeling really tired .....and they just kept flowing. The other was when I was feeling pretty up and then something upset me a bit, brought back memories, made a link to Shakespeare line then.........song. I've never noticed before that it's a sudden emotional or environmental change that inspires me - GOOD OBSERVATION !!!!
> Suede were great. I was right at the front near the stage in a crowd of about 40,000 I think. I love the track Savoir Faire from the Head Music album. 'Saturday Night' was also really good.
> By the way, can you or do you do anything to calm down your up moods or do you just let them ride?
SOunds like a cool concert. I just read an interview
with Suede and their producer about the song
Savoir Faire - it was quite complex and involved.
Managing moods is really tough for me as AD's
pump me up after a few weeks (artificially) and
so I'm currently treating downs with Zoloft, and
when it get's too intense I back off and get
some solid sleep for a few days. It isn't a great
solution so I'm going to start a non-lithium
mood stabilizer this month. My docs been out of
the office, so I've been waiting to do this for
several weeks. Kind of spooked by the side
effects, but am also tired of bouncing off the
walls (or am I??? hee hee!)
Be well - Sean.
