I didn't talk about it here because I didn't want to invade her privacy, but when I asked her about it, she urged me to talk about it and how important organ donation is. I wish I could be poetic about it, but all I can say is - my mom's gotten at least 12 wonderful years that she would not have otherwise had, were it not for an organ donor. So, people: turn over your driver's license and sign your name.
2. I turn 32 in exactly one month.
3. This has been a crazy week. On Monday, I was determined to start working on re-recording some of my older songs, and so I spent the bulk of Monday evening procrastinating and uploading the old, original versions of what I eventually want to fix, and making a long blog post about it.
Tuesday night, the dogs didn't stop barking until around 9:00 or so, which is when I was finally able to actually do some recording. I started doing basic acoustic tracks for "I'm Connected", but then forgot how it went; at least I remembered how all 3 guitars were arranged. Since the recording was going nowhere, I decided to try putting some other instrumentation over the guitars, but everything I tried sounded terrible, and I soon gave up, feeling rather dejected.
Wednesday, I got calls from two different people asking for scoring. Both on tight deadlines, and with completely opposing styles. I indulged in a wee bit of retail therapy last night, which actually ended causing a bit more stress when I got home.
So today, I'm a bit exhausted and overwhelmed. But the news about my mom has gone a long way towards smoothing things out.
