Our friend and sound man incredible Fred came over for dinner and hang time tonight. We are getting ready to start the process of recording our new cd. Songs have been picked, still working on one, and now the hard work begins. There is nothing glamorous about the nuts and bolts of recording. Sometimes it is loads of fun and exciting and then there are the tears. The magic happens when it is all over, everything is mixed and the new cd is in hand. My biggie right now, get the lungs healthy for the gigs and the recording. Exercise, fresh air, eating healthy, meditation all play a part in what we do in music as well as our daily life. And we are just Rick and Jilda...I think of people like GaGa who have a company of employees depending on her talent, health, and the whims of fans.
The past couple of days had been spring perfection. Mother Nature threw a kink in that perfection today. Clouds rolled in this morning and though it never rained it was damp and chilly all day.
Tomorrow starts the first full week of March. An interesting year so far. There are days when it seems as if this year has gone on forever and days that flash by. This week remember to treat others the way you would like to be treated your self. Share a smile, spread some kindness.
