I’ve been under the weather this week and have not practiced my piano piece at all. I told people I would actually be singing tomorrow — but my voice is not in very good shape. Still, I’m going to venture forth toward the church in a bit, where that nice Baldwin grand piano is, along with all the very nice people who don’t mind me playing on it from time to time.
So, I might pull through. I just want to leave it up in the air. In the meanwhile, anyone who wants my Exile album, or at least wants to listen to it to check it out, but who doesn’t want to shell out fifteen bucks for it, here it is online:
Also, in isolation this week, I have been pondering my life’s direction. I’ve felt as though I’ve been in something of a lull ever since I finished the script and demo to my musical. I’ve been working here and there, on my various projects as well as on the necessities of living. But my heart, by and large, has not been in what I’m about.
I think this is because I am being cosmically nudged to get cracking on the Eden in Babylon vocal score. I finished the first five numbers a while back, but got sidetracked when I encountered a few setbacks earlier on. I’ve dealt with the setbacks sufficiently that there’s no real remaining excuse for slacking.
So I’m going to prioritize scoring all the singing parts for Eden in Babylon, and it’s going to have to take priority over this blog. I found earlier that I was spending too much time blogging, and not getting the vocal score done. Life does present itself occasionally, and it will interfere with my creative flow. But in the meantime, there’s no valid reason for not pressing onward with the goal.
So – I’ll try to have something posted tomorrow. No promises, but you might as well check back in a day or so, and see if anything looks different. After that, if you don’t hear from me a while, take it to be good news. Only so many hours in the day, and occasionally one has to get on the ball.
Please donate to Eden in Babylon.
A little bit goes a long, long way.
