all is not lost

i have been hacking away at the same tune for about a month now. i have no idea why it has taken so long to finalize an arrangement, but it has. the result is pleasant but will require some editing. i hate it, but sometimes that’s the way it has to be.

life is busy. a family takes time if you’re going to do it right. i also want to do my music right. i guess that means that my self-imposed deadline for the release of this album is going to be blown to pieces. i would have to really pull off a miracle to make it happen and i don’t want to rush this one the way i did the last. with “the green man collection” it was almost as important to finish it as it was to do it right. that album was really a process for me and i’m glad that i did it the way i did. that said, i really need to do this one right for the same reasons. it’s another process.

i’m using a pile of new methods to motivate myself. i’m going to see if connecting with old friends and new via several networking sites and one of those narcissistic “look at me” technologies (twitter) will provide some external force. all of the requisite links are over there on the left. it’s harder to slack and not show progress when people are watching.

expect more frequent updates. i am going to put things out in the open and see where it takes me.
