The past couple of months have been pretty exhausting. Doubt, uncertainties and too much self-criticism had taken a front row seat in my life leaving me wondering and wandering quite a lot.But about a month ago I decided to do what (I think) I do best. I put my thoughts down on paper and slowly these words became lyrics. I then dusted off my recording gear, composed some music and shaped a song. I already had some sort of a melody and a chord progression in my head and also buried in some old sound files on my computer. So I worked around it and created “The Fall”. This song is a good depiction of my mindset at the time, during that particular season. But also an important and gentle reminder to always “give myself a little grace”, like a dear friend of mine told me.So the song closes 2019 but sets 2020 as a time to keep on moving forward doing what brings me joy without worrying too much about the end goal.
