I took a day to play yesterday. I incorporated the lyrics to a song that I have always played as an instrumental. I have for many years, played Us And Them, on a piano. Yesterday, I made an attempt to add the lyrics. I’m no David Gilmour but, I had fun with this… It was a challenge that I really enjoyed because it’s multi-tasking brain work. Try singing and playing at the same time lol. Especially while trying to memorize unfamiliar lyrics… It was an awesome day to myself. I feel rejuvenated and artistically fulfilled. Filled the tank!
I also revisited my cover of Fool’s Overture. Roger Hodgson, the songwriter is coming to Phoenix on Dec.2nd. He happens to be my idol. It is a bucket list dream of mine to meet him. I’m hoping that I get to! I’m not in a position to spend a lot of money on V.I.P. or Soundcheck packages… I am purchasing 2 tickets, one of which is for my oldest daughter who is attending the concert with me. I’m trying to acquire a couple of Meet&Greet passes through the radio station that is promoting the event. So far no response. I really hope that I can meet this musical genius! It would mean the world to me!
I made some extra money helping a friend who was moving out of his rented home. I spent the day cleaning this large rental. The most interesting part of this project was cleaning the oven without oven cleaner. He didn’t want to mess with the toxicity and lengthy mess. I found and used Brillo Pads to clean the oven and they worked pretty well!
I spot cleaned all of the carpets, cleaned all of the baseboards, wiped down walls, cabinets, drawers. Vacuumed every piece of carpeting including all of the stairs… You get the picture. It was a good day! It was however sad to say goodbye to this man, a good friend of mine! My next door neighbor will be missed tremendously!
