Music Front Update

***July 11th update*** The show went better than I expected on some levels and less than better on others, but I had a good time, and Jason was well pleased. We will play again on the 17th of August, so we have a month to get a bit more polished. Thanks for your support and encouragement!***

My sister is in Mexico, and I have the computer all to myself. So, I have to post this update regarding a show. Jason Millerd and I have been playing together for I guess it's getting to be almost 2 years off and on. We are finally going to do an extended set at the coffeehouse his parents own Beatnix. It is a pretty safe and receptive place for poetry and music beginners. The audiences are always very kind, so I am excited about this opportunity.

We have had a few four hour rehearsals. My fingers and voice are spent. I don't think I could do this for a living, but it is fun to go through this particular fire, nonetheless. I think back on some of my posts about writing and this music thing, and I see tons of growth and persistence. I dare say I am proud of the efforts that have been made. I literally have had no real income, job security, nor do I have training in the craft of song writing, but it is His Grace and His Mercy that is sustaining me. I give thanks and praises to the Most High God for all He has allowed me to experience and all His many gifts and blessings.

God is good!
