The ongoing monthly music journal.
A trip at the start of May set the tone, my favourite and most adventurous solo trip to date. I stepped out of my music narrative and found the organic conversations and making friends easy. No earphones made me more approachable, and in turn curious friendships and conversations sparked.
Back in London, I stopped wearing my earphones so much. Struck up a wonderful conversation with a Canadian train guard, befriended someone on a train who took a shining to my sketchbook.
At the end of May I had a nervous dip which had me retract a lot and lose a sense of self. In that music came often to triggering, so too it ended up being a back burner.
So the May selection is much more streamline, but perhaps more meaningful.
