Today was a pretty magical fruitful day...
My friends Michael and Sylvia met up with me and we travelled to Fort Worden... Michael made some documentation of what a beautiful, magical place it is there...
I went for a nature walk and sang and told a little story about the history of the place. I will let you see as soon as he edits the video for me. There was a particularly magical moment toward the end of the video!
Today has been a very green, misty classic spring day... it's pretty chilly out, so don't be suprised to see me wearing a winter coat! The only thing that warms me up is playing cello...
I recorded some cello sketches with Neville at Synergy Sound today as well...
(Backers, there's a NEW SONG on the password-protected online journal~!)
I am so excited to have had this support from you guys to make the record of my dreams...
Now as we head into the home stretch, please keep in mind that if we raise $3,000, I will be able to put the album out on vinyl too! Which will be extra special since I am planning to record onto reel to reel... so the magnetic wave form will be replicated for your aural enjoyment & also for future generations... Since I've received a donation of $200 privately, $3,000-$200=$2800, which means I think that we only need to raise $250 more dollars, but you can help me do the math! (I got all A's in art and music but not so great in math.)
We also did a somewhat silly but heartfelt cover song today... I sang & Sylvia played piano. It's for the soundtrack of a video that's almost finished that you'll see soon enough!
with heartfelt appreciation,
THANKS AGAIN >>SO<< VERY MUCH!
