I’ve been sorely tempted to post one of these two new piano tracks that I recorded on the Baldwin Grand at my church with the help of my pastor’s Motorola smartphone. This is an especially strong temptation in light of my having promised to post more music, and less written text, at this time of our common trial.
The reason why I haven’t been posting more music can be summed up in two words: technical difficulties.
The reason why I don’t want to post either of these two new tracks is on another plane. They’re supposed to be piano tracks used in our interactive production of my musical, Eden in Babylon. If I posted them prematurely, without the other musicians and singers involved, it might hex it.
So, I guarantee you that you will soon see a singer, a bass player, and a pianist (Yours Truly) performing my song “Midnight Screams” in three different places at three different times. The beauty of it is that it all comes together at once.
This all is reminding me of a time when I asked a woman to marry me. She said yes, but told me not to tell anyone yet, because it might “hex” it. Of course, I told everybody. Five days later, her ex-husband found out about it, and she was more-or-less forced to call off the engagement.
Oh well. Perhaps our sudden mutual feeling of having fallen in love was little more than a fleeting infatuation. Still, I have no desire to repeat past indiscretion. As you all know, I am virtually already married to Eden in Babylon.

A little bit goes a long, long way.
