Greatest Relief by Mikael

I have discovered something… Writing songs is one of the best things I have ever done! I love getting lost in the creation process: writing the lyrics, playing chords, developing melodies… and also finding a bit of myself with each one.  I could easily sit and write music and songs all day if I didn’t have to go to school or do my job.  This is one thing I can do where I completely lose track of time and have a blast.  And it is completely worth it!  The completion of a song leaves me feeling rejuvenated, accomplished, and ready to produce more (if only there were time!).  

In total, I have 31 song lyrics, and of those 2 are finished songs (they have been recorded), another 2 have musical backing tracks I wrote and recorded, and at least ten of them have at least a melody if not other music details.  Some of them may not be the best songs in the world, but I have a blast creating them.  One of them is about stars (in a sense)… I think that one may have to be some kind of lullaby or something.  But much of them are very true with something that has happened in my life or were triggered by a friends’ experience or something I read.  

Because the songs all come from some part of me, most of them are very personal.  Some of my favorites, however, are some of the fun, upbeat ones.  

But the best part of all of this, is that writing songs is the biggest stress reliever for me.  It never fails to center me or just keep me relaxed. I love it!  Now if only I had the time to write and finish all of them!
