It's Drizzling, and

I'm still in Eastbourne, at the studio.

We've done another song, I have written two more, and I am feeling very, very detached from the world I am used to. The world of social whirlwinds and pretending I can live in the same timescale as my friends.

I have been in the studio and then in the pub, then back to the studio. Every so often I worry that while I am here everyone else is forgetting about me.

I feel isolated, but somehow fulfilled.

There is something that tells me "this is who you are, isolated and slightly lost" and, in a peculiar way, that comforts me.

Perhaps it's true.

Maybe I want that to be true.

I think I want isolation because it absolves me from feeling responsiblity towards anyone who preferred me when I was someone who had passion without direction, songs without the means for singing them.

Maybe I am too self-involved, maybe I am just about self-involved enough.

Who the fuck knows?

I don't know. I think I don't really want to know.

Hmmmm, I have no answers. Only questions. God, I'm mysterious.

However, come round for dinner tonight and I might think of some?!
Go on...

I'm not forgetting about you.

Where you are is just the right place to write songs. I've always found that being alone/isolated and wondering about what else is happening (or indeed, what HAS happened) helps tremendously to put pen to already-scribbled-on paper.

It's also nice to be doing something different.

Ah, I crave the isolation! It is very hard to be creative and write a book when you have people expecting you to do things like cook and wash up.

I think that you are probably in a perfect place right now. Time to reflect and time to heal.

Things sound really tough for you at the moment. I hope things look up.

Curly is right though. The way you're feeling now is probably going to produce some of the best music you've ever written. Of course to a degree, so dont allow yourself to feel all lost and detached for longer than necessary.

And I really hope things look up soon. (But only after all the great songs have been written of course!)

Chin up.

From the sounds of things you have just the right amount of 'self-questioning' to be considered 'normal'.

Now as to what 'normal' is, well that's a whole other issue..

Don't worry. Everyone feels isolated in Eastbourne.

Isolation is actually hard therapy. It doesn't work for everyone, but I think it might for you. Use the time, use your music. Trust me, your friends will remember you with open arms when you're back amongst them. That doesn't change.

I don't think we could ever forget about you.
It will just take everyone, you included, a little bit of time to adapt to the new lifestyle.

Sending you lots of love and support from other side of t'pond.

I think you're just processing.. and feeling good about where you are. There's certainly nothing wrong w/ that. We all need a tad bit of isolation at times.. or some time to reflect. I think most people prefer you to progress.. and you seem to be doing well at doing that girl. I can't wait to see what happens for you next!
