No Time For Old Men

Or, more to the point... this particular old man. FAWM started 19 days ago and all I have to show for it is two demo'd tunes and a four pages of lyrics (or potentials, as I call 'em). Dismal! I was so excited to get going on this years FAWM output, and my enthusiasm has mostly fizzled out. What happened, you might ask? Life.

Right around the start of FAWM, my lovely and faithful Honda CR-V gave up the ghost. Not completely, but it'll cost more money than I want to spend on it to make it go again. So I bought a NEW CAR!!! My first new car in my entire life. No small task, this... it took a couple arduous and tedious weeks. (I could go on for paragraphs on that, believe me.)

My sister Janine has been battling breast cancer and is now into the chemo phase. She's lost almost all her hair. She is in remarkably good spirits I'm happy to say, but it hasn't been easy for her. Last weekend, my other sister Julie came to visit from Las Vegas. We spend the weekend visiting and seeing the "Cali" sights, including the ocean.

This coming weekend, though, we have nothing planned. Jane in fact is going to visit a friend on Sunday, so I'll have to entire day to record and create music. I'm really looking forward to it.
