My brother has called me CB, short for CareBear for as long as I can remember.
Lately, the name seems especially appropriate. Not because I identify strongly with the CareBears, but because I've sort of gone into a self-appointed hibernation period.
I don't have any gigs scheduled until mid-January. I'm just spending a lot of time at home. Perhaps a dangerous amount of time.
Because instead of feeling like this break is doing wonders and I'm feeling refreshed, I'm instead thinking I never want to leave my house again!
I know we all go through it from time to time. That feeling of, "WHAT in the world am I doing with my life?" I'm feeling it. It may also be a little bit of post-holiday blues. It's a funky time of year.
All I know is that I look forward to feeling like I'm ready to get back out, and I'm a little worried I won't ever get to that feeling.
