Songwriting: Catch and Release

with Cris Williamson

“Everyone has songs living within, ready to emerge,” Cris Williamson writes. “The mind may say, ‘I cannot do this.’ The mind may say, ‘I’m not a musician.’ The mind may say, ‘I cannot sing.’ The mind may say, ‘I’m just too shy.’ These things don’t matter. What does matter is coming here just as you are, and showing up to write and cast your lines deep into the stream of consciousness.
