It’s been awhile since I last wrote anything for this blog, but hey, I have excuses like anyone else!
Here are a few of them:
- I’m writing other articles, complete with affiliate links, that are getting published online, not to mention that I finally found the story structure for my Alaskan book. Whew! That was not an easy thing to do. But it also means that I will probably need to make a trip up north to get some detailed writing work done. Which means I’ll probably have speaking and workshop engagements there, as well as a radio interview or two.
- Then there’s the pre-school conference coming up in May. I’m happy to report that I will be doing 3 workshops in 1 day for the BEST Arts (Building Educational Success through the Arts) VII Conference that will be attended by 700-800 pre-school educators in the Southern California area. It originated through the Arts in Education wing of the Los Angeles Music Center and dear Joan Boyett put me in contact with Ilean Rabens, its co-founder and director.
- Speaking of the Music Center, its Founders’ Hall is an inspiring place and I was happy to make new friends with the Symphonians when I recently performed for them there. The life-sized portrait of Dorothy Chandler made me stand tall and proud as I remembered back to a time when I sang for coins tossed near me as I sang by the fountain. I wonder if young artists are allowed to do that anymore?
- Or how about the new holiday song Michael and I wrote together, called Carry Me Away, which I also created a webpage for and sold online?
NOTE: The podcast is on the back burner for the moment until I can shake myself a bit more free from this computer chair and also find some tech people to help me out.
That’s all for now,
