New song: Anchor
Autumn is sneaking into our homes and bones and hearts, people. I don't know about you, but it makes me a little melancholy. Here's a sweet, sunny, pick-me-up of a song to scare off any ghosts or sadnesses that might be cooling off your heart. Wael Salloum commissioned this song about a year ago, and had me play it for his then-girlfriend Vivian on the occasion of his marriage proposal to her. They are now happily married! Since writing it, I've thought a lot about this relationship dynamic. It seems to be that in most relationships (lovers, friends, siblings, business partners), one party tends to provide order and stability, and the other tends to provide enthusiasm and spontaneity. I'd wager that a healthy dose of both are required for a happy marriage and a happy life. I think this New Orleanean couple said it best when they described their relationship in terms of "order muppets" and "chaos muppets": http://nolabeings.com/post/94645323308/we-describe-our-relationship-in-terms-of-order. Of course, balance is probably the ideal - nobody wants to be the order muppet all the time. And take it from me, chaos can get a little exhausting, too. So, which muppet are you? Are you Burt or Ernie? Are you an anchor or a balloon? Do you make the mischief or the bed? Love and chaos, Carsie PS.
