I love weatherizing. There. I said it. And I love “So You Think You Can Dance.” It’s the only thing on television that will make me sit still in a room and not go look for something better to do.
I’ve been rearranging a few rooms in our house. All things related to the biz of writing music or the actual music biz have found a new home in my basement office. Ahhhh. It’s nice down there. I like to organize. I’ve left the cobwebs and dead spiders in all the corners however because those things scare the children away. And that’s how I keep the space to myself.
This had to be done because even though I JUST released this CD, I’m going to start working on new material. It’s a long story. And I can’t start a big, new anything when my surroundings are jumbled. It’s a character trait or flaw – take your pick. 90% of the organizing work is done and now starts the part that sucks … I have to sit down and try to write another song. These things scare me.
I have been offered a few ”dream” gigs this month; it’s been a good month. On Sunday, November 8, 2009, I will be playing The Metro Arts Expo from 2-4 p.m. with James Biehn as my side man. Very cool. It’s FREE this year for the first time in its 23 year history. Come down and start your Christmas shopping.
Next, I’ve been selected to play the Crossroads Conference this year. Very, VERY cool. Thank you Crossroads! I’ll be playing Friday, December 4 at 8 p.m. at The Des Moines Social Club. Other good things are in the works as well, it’s a darn exciting time and as details firm up, I’ll let ya know about it all!
And now, I’ll try to write a song…
Taken with my phone. Not a great shot, but part of the organizing that needed to happen. The tree is cut out of one piece of fabric. It’s finally up!
