Pressing On | Piano Improvisation [episode 230, june 16, 2020]

“Pressing On” – Piano Instrumental Improvisation for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, and Relaxation

Today’s interlude is called “Pressing On”. This is the first interlude I’ve recorded in more than a couple of weeks. I was actually a bit surprised that they weren’t missed! I expected to start getting emails and questions about why the interludes had stopped. I’m guessing everyone else was as busy as I’d been.

The truth is, I was tired. I needed a break. The last few months of living through this pandemic have been exhausting. While some people were going stir crazy from being quarantined, I was working as hard as ever. My main business is e-commerce and everyone was shopping online. Then, we entered into this season of intense racial division and injustice. The country is rebelling, revolting, protesting, and it feels as if I’m woken up in some other nation. I find myself wrestling with any number of emotions and trying to be informed by listening to our American news only makes me more frustrated. It’s all just been exhausting.

During the last few months I’ve felt like I’ve gotten off track. From personal goals and disciplines like my fitness and weight loss journey to the more important things like consistently recording these interludes – I’ve just been stalled. It’s like I pulled off the road of life and just needed to take a break and reset.

Life is that way. Sometimes things get so crazy that we just love our focus. I confess, that’s where I’ve been. But … we were never called to stay in that place. I took some time to get away with my family for a much-needed vacation. I’ve allowed myself to journal and document some heavy things in my soul that I needed to process. I’ve made some adjustments in my business that have taken away some of the stress and anxiety I was carrying.

So today, I’m back on the road again. I’m pressing on. I hope you’ll join me!

Grace and peace,
Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer
