We’re all hoping for a speedy recovery for John as he rests his voice for the next month.

John Mayer‘s body is a wonderland — in recovery. The crooner underwent surgery Oct. 20 to remove the granuloma above his vocal chord, he announced on his personal Tumblr, and will be resting his voice for at least the next month. “I should be frustrated,” he wrote in a message to his fans. “But I just can’t stop thinking about beautiful things.”

“I never thought I’d be wishing I could do what I love again,” he continued. “I stay in at night, picking guitar parts off of records and dreaming of playing on the big stage. The only difference between now and when I was 18 is that now I have this beautiful, meaningful record waiting for me when I can sing it.”

While we want John to take as much time as he needs to recover, we can’t to see how this experience will influence his music. It sounds like he’s doing some serious thinking.
