Hunted

Another more-or-less jazzy version of a song that figures in my new musical Eden in Babylon.  For the more profound and eerie version, complete with singing and fancy instrumentation, say a prayer for me, keep your fingers crossed, get your mojo rising, and come see me next week.

A Question Re: My Royal Rhapsody

I’m kind of a dunce at these modern-day Internet-related matters, so please bear with me.

I was trying to post a piano piece, because today is Friday, and I try to turn these kinds of things in on Friday.  Piano pieces, that is.  (Maybe you’ve noticed that).

This time, I played a twelve minute piano piece that I composed that leads into a singing part – a three-movement “rhapsody” called “The Royal Rhapsody.”

It took nine hours to upload to youtube.  I did it overnight.

I was trying to publish it, but before I could click “publish” somehow the browser window disappeared.

When I reopened the browser, I can’t find the piece.

Did I lose it?  If so, will I have to endure the whole nine hour upload again?

If anyone knows how to help me with this, please comment.

Thank you.

Gratitude List 814

I’m a bit behind on my daily gratitude, so here’s my list from Saturday morning.  I do think it’s a good idea to keep posting these lists on Mondays, however.   Seems to be the day when most of us need it — gratitude, that is — the most.  
1. After being frustrated for days, in a single search I was able to find easy-to-follow, point-by-point instructions both for trimming a video and also for cropping one, just as one would a photo.
 
2. As a result, I’m finally uploading the “Castle” piece onto my youtube channel.  I’m doing that right now (it’s at 30%).
 
3. Beautiful spring morning outside my window, birds chirping.
 
4. Turned in early and slept very well, up at 3:30 am or so.
 
5. I turned down the opportunity to play at One World’s open mike last night, mostly because I just wasn’t in the space to be around all those people and to have to present myself socially.  I was happy I did this because it was viewed as a victory for self-care.  Sometimes you just gotta curl up with a good book in bed.
 
6. Farmer’s Market starts up this morning.
 
7. 53F degrees and perfect running weather.
 
8. Heard from Jan that Echo’s going to stay down there longer (which makes sense) and anyway I will see Jan soon.  Glad they’re okay and that the U-Haul van is history.
 
9. Danielle edited the newsletter and there’s been a $50 donation.
 
10. Looking forward to the beautiful weekend.  The Lord God is Good.

Castle

A medley I’m calling “Castle” for now, an interesting weaving together of themes from the old BeeGee’s song “Cucumber Castle” with the song “Sweet Lemeney” (or “Arise and Pick a Posy”) which I believe is an old English tune, though I first heard it in the musical “Lark Rise” that we did at PCPA back in 1982.
