Three days of work this week and then…………..
Time for merriment!
Since this is the biggest wing-ding for me until the winter holidays, I had better make good use of my time.
I already have my Via Starbucks coffee, Mini-Moo things for the coffee, charged up Kindle, money, clean clothes. The only thing left to put in the bag is the sense of adventure. Not a problem. We are going to get wild at the Neil Diamond concert! Watching Big Sister Mia leap around is worth the price of admission alone. Wonderful time!
I spoke with Amy in Canada last night and we discussed the possibility of me spending some time there too. One cannot have too many trips planned. Since traveling is the only thing that keeps me centered, it’s important that I do that as much as possible.
I learned “Hallelujah” on the piano yesterday. I have always loved that song but could never figure out the progressions. I sat down at the piano yesterday and found the pesky B chord – the missing link. Having that figured out will make it simple to re-key it for my own voice, etc. Music is all math. I learn by looking at the intervals. Show me how to play – don’t tell me. And for God’s sake, don’t expect me to read music.
K.D. Lang is one of the finest vocalists ever. I first heard her at the Winnipeg folk festival when she was signing Patsy Cline songs with her band. She was amazing then and is even more amazing now. A Canadian treasure.
She’s changed a bit since then.
So, now I am all inspired. Good thing for a Monday.
