When I was around 24, I met a young man who played blues guitar. I really liked the way he played and my dream was to ask him if he’d play songs with me. Soon after, I found out he liked Tori Amos so I grew emboldened to ask him. Would he say yes?
My journey with this man has been musical, mystical, ridiculously fun and full of adventure, but I never could’ve dreamed this big for myself. I just couldn’t have conceived of it.
Looking back, what unfolded next still amazes me. This woman wanted to write songs more regularly (she was relatively new to it) and increase her confidence in writing and performing. In the end, she not only wrote a beautiful batch of songs, but she liked them so much she decided to record an EP with me producing, and then she auditioned and submitted her EP to Berklee College of Music where she was accepted and now is a full-time student!
Have you ever had a doorway dream that led somewhere wildly amazing? If so, please feel free to share it below (We all love a good story!)
Or, likewise, is there a doorway open now that is calling to you (& you could walk through) even though you don’t know exactly where it leads?
Tell us that too if you’re willing!
Sometimes we want to know the outcome in advance.
How could I have conceived of my empathic daughter Cecilia all those years ago? How could I possibly have predicted bold baby Helen?
I simply wanted this blues guitar boy to play a gig with me at Starbucks 😉
I was thinking small, but that’s okay, because that gig at Starbucks was the doorway to everything…
