Measuring the Self

Comparing one's self to others is such an awful habit of mine.

Spiritually, I totally get how ridiculous it is to even go there in my mind.

First of all, one never knows what is really going on for someone. So, when I compare, I'm comparing what I know about myself to what I ASSUME about someone else. So silly.

As I get this album ready, the comparing is getting the best of me at times. Will it sound as good as ______? Will it be ready at the same time as ______?

I have to take a deep breath and be humbled by the fact that it is what it is. I have a newborn baby, and getting this album together have been pretty challenging in that respect. My situation is different from other artists right now. My situation is always different I guess... It's always mine.

Anyway, I did manage to finish the cover art. Photo was taken by my friend Amar Atma Singh. I am so thrilled with the photo shoot! I get really shy being photographed.

Despite the worries, I am so excited about this album. I think it is definitely the best thing I have ever created musically. I'm really looking forward to finishing it... whenever that is!

Love,
Sirgun
