full life

(no subject)

1. Feeling pretty good today; stomach is settled, I finished all my morning projects, head buzzing with song ideas.

2. Last night's songwriting session turned out pretty well; we've got 4 new songs that are more than halfway done, and between those guys and "Tug of War", we'll have lots to choose from for our possible late-December gig at Knitting Factory (on the main stage, no less). There's one song of David's that we'd written an overly-elaborate B section for, and we decided to scrap it completely and start from scratch, and we used his keyboard to write with, which (a) is a big departure from the usual 2-acoustic-guitar setup, (b) opened up a ton of new possibilities, (c) which we then tried to figure out how to translate back into guitar-land, with varying degrees of success. Hey, I'm just excited that I was able to contribute.

3. It should come as no surprise that Kath and I have BOTH been having puppy dreams all week. I need to remind myself that we probably won't find lil' Duncan (and/or Lola) this weekend, and that it's OK if we don't. Remind me of this paragraph next Monday when I'm insanely depressed.

More later.
