1. Recording is almost done. One more guitar track and a few straggling bass and organ lines.
It's been fun, but kind of all-consuming and I've found myself resenting how my "normal life" has been getting in the way. :)
Lesson #1: Next time, I'm going to quit my normal life for the duration of recording.
2. I have been privileged to have friends and family play on this album - and it's been fantastic.
Lesson #2: It's a very good idea to have talented friends and family.
3. Concert is set for Saturday, March 29th, 7:30pm at Tenth Avenue Church. If all goes well, it should be a CD release as well! So March holds concert prep and paper-writing. I'm just starting to work on spreading the word about the concert as I'd really like to play to as full a house as possible...feel free to spread the word yourselves; it's definitely a 'come one, come all' kind of event! (There's a facebook event if that's an easier way.)
Lesson #3: There's a lot of admin to do for a CD project, concert, etc. If only there weren't also a paper to write!
4. Pastors' Conference brochure is out (see http://www.regent-college.edu/events/conferences/pastors/speakers.php )
Lesson #4: Don't assume that listing people together makes them peers... Marva Dawn, Bruce Hindmarsh, Darrell Johnson, Andrea Tisher (one of these is not like the others!)
