Amazing Saturday, went for a swim, worked on music, had lunch with good friends, fantastic weather, and just had a great voice lesson working on one of my original songs. My voice instructor told me the 15/8 time signature totally works, and I’m really excited to keep working on it until it’s good enough to perform live. Can’t wait!
It’s been a fantastic start to the weekend so far–Porcelain Doll won best music video at the Epidemic student film festival, I’ve finished a draft of an arrangement for Colours (the entire song!), and the weather is simply glorious today. Cheers, everyone. Looking forward to a nice long walk and some gelato in the sun later today. If this streak continues, this could end up being the best weekend of the year so far. 🙂
I started working on the arrangement for Colours last week, and I’m working through the song relatively quickly. There’s a lot more to do even after the basic structure is complete, but it’s really exciting to see the song come to life. I may have shed a few tears while I was working on the chords, which is always a good sign.
This morning I also noticed that one of the buds on one of my orchids had opened. The first flower of the year. I can’t get enough of it; I want to keep staring at it. It makes me so happy.
All in all, I’m in a really good state of mind. Not bad, May, not a bad start at all.
