If it was going to hit, though, the timing was as good as it could be, since at least it was kind enough to wait until after my unusually busy weekend was over.
Saturday I had the opportunity to sing a few of my songs that are close to my heart at an event called Arts in the Park. I don’t usually get to perform my more artsy stuff, and, sandwiched in between poetry reading and artistic dances, this was a perfect place to share it. I really enjoyed the experience.
Sunday afternoon I had a photo shoot for the upcoming album with Rachel from Maggie and Rachel Photography. It turned out to be so much fun! And seriously, quite adventurous. The part of me that revels in the perfection that comes from everything coming together just right, was having a heyday. I won’t SAY we trespassed where there was a claim to be attack dogs (fortunately we only saw pidgeons, but that was scary enough), but, oh, the cool places we found! And I have to admit I love throwing a little bit of possible danger into the mix to get that perfect shot - could you tell from the burning piano picture on my home page? - and I’m happy to have chosen a photographer who understood exactly what ‘feel’ I wanted and was willing to go the distance to create it. All in all, it was a great shoot, and I’m looking forward to seeing the results!
My Other Project is progressing, and I have a tentative launch date of May 30th! Of course, more on that later.
So, I will now recede back into my glassy-eyed stare and hope this flu won’t last too much longer...
