New Week Clean Slate

I like Mondays. The start of a new week. Mondays feel like yet another chance to do something right, for something great to happen, like getting presents in the mail. (Come on, aren’t presents in the mail exciting??)

This week I’m working on what I’m calling the “conductor chapter” of my book. My goal is to get a lock on showing what a conductor does and to do it in a page-turner way. I also have to pick the secondary topic of the chapter. I’m pretty much certain it’s going to be the benefits and dangers of singing, and there are dangers, some pretty scary. I was getting anxiety attacks just reading about them. Seriously, I had to keep putting the Oliver Sacks book Musicophilia down. It was freaking me out.

Aha! I just got email from the conductor of our choir. His answer to a question I asked him has given me an idea how to make this chapter a page turner. Money. Money and art.

And there was yet another photo shoot on Perry Street! This time the model was a guy.
