A Whilrwind of a Weekend 

Whew! What a weekend!

This weekend saw me at a 2 year old's birthday party, Praising Hands puppet team rehearsal, playing with a new dyrer (gently used, but new to me), rehersal rehersal rehersal for my solo Sunday morning, performing said solo at church Sunday morning, and an International Day dinner that Sunday evening. Needless to say, my house is a wreak because it was so neglected, but I'm taking my own sweet time today cleaning it up. After I pick David up from school I'm ordering us pizza for lunch, and then I'll kick it into high gear!

The song I did Sunday morning for our International Day was "Go Light Your World" by Kathy Troccoli. I had to sing it in a higher key, for there was no way my soprano was going to make it through that alto song. I tried to sing it in the original key, for I think that is where the song sounds its best, but after the first try my throat was starting to hurt and I was resisting the urge to cough up a lung. So, the higher key it was. I had the idea of having a power point presentation presented as I sang, so I found a ton of pictures from all over the internet and gave them to a friend of mine, who compiled the whole thing into an absolutely fabulous presentation. She put the pictures together in a way that would reflect the lyrics of the song, and included the lyrics in the power point so people could 'see' what I was singing. She did a marvelous job, and I was honored to be part of it. If you have never heard the song, you can find a sample of it here. It's truly heartwarming.

After service, my pastor asked me again if I had talked to Marvin (our associate pastor who has a street music ministry, as well as his own home recording studio) about recording an album. I said I had not yet, but I would. It's always been a dream of mine of make a Christmas CD as well as a CD of traditional hymns, but I just feel funny about talking to someone about it. After all, it would be taking their time and their efforts to make it happen, and I just don't have the confidence to go forth and persue it. I'll do it, but I'm still getting up the nerve.

It's funny, but I'm the same way with my artwork. It's awesome to share it with others, and even try to make a little money selling prints, but I'm oddly unforthcoming about it in the art community. I have my deviantART gallery, and my one-day-to-be-released web site, but right now I'm happy with that. Maybe later I'll get bossy about it, but right now I'm content with things to be as they are.

And now...a meme! Tagged by Mary!
