a certain saught after bluegrass banjo aficionado
often gave interior dialogue advice
said people talk about what they don’t do right
what they wish they had done
if they paid attention they would see it wasn’t limited to studying music
how they wish to change their bodies
or their emotions
or their parenting
or their savings blah dee dee blah blah
said the mind plays tricks on you like living with a horrible radio station on in the corner and can’t turn it off – trick is to ignore the station and do your work don’t get hung up on stopping something that won’t stop, like having tinnitus, learn to fuggedaboutit.
I never played the banjo so I don’t know.
