Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?
I absolutely love singing rock songs and I'll never pass up an opportunity to go to a jam. However, my last band didn't work out and I have had no luck at all finding another band to join.
Thus, I decided that I was going to stop looking for a while. Then I found out I was being laid off from my real job and I figured that there was only so much rejection I could take. The last thing my psyche needs is for me to be simultaneously informed of the auditions I didn't get and the interviews that didn't lead to a new job.
I've been on the periphery of the local music scene long enough to know that I'll never let it go completely. I still have all my PA gear and my Big Book O' Song Lyrics. However, this is just not the time for me to pour effort, money and focus into that particular hobby.
But if you look over at me when we're sitting at a stoplight, you'll probably catch me singing in the car. I have to keep my chops up somehow.
