"The Elephant Diet" Day # 96 Four Days Away

I'm only four days away from reaching day ONE HUNDRED. Another milestone. I'm pondering what should happen on that day. It seems like a good day to make the final decision to commit to doing the show I've been blogging about and gathering information for.

A very important piece fell in place last night. It was the last big piece.

I met with someone who is very gifted at extracting the heart out of all my ideas floating around in my head and heart. He can distill into small phrases what takes me paragraphs to say. The meeting went very well and ended with the affirmative: "you need to do this show".

He began to have ideas for a creative video to advertise the show. That's the last piece I've needed. A way to present my idea to the world.

Today I spent the whole day listening through all the songs my producer has been sending me. They've been busy in Nashville! It takes a while to get used to the songs dressed up in their new sounds. Some are almost exactly what I put in my demo - the riffs and ideas are still there. By the end of the day, after recording new vocals with the new versions in my own studio, they fit like an old pair of jeans. We'll record the real vocals later.

My heart is stirred.

  1. Here I am in Guelph Ontario watching it snow.... It is April 20...we thought snow was done.
    Is winter hanging on so long just for you and your elephant? Shall I put on Christmas music or what!?

    Maybe next year you could try eating an elephant that would extend the wonder and beauty of lovely warm weather just when it is starting to turn cold and gray. It would be an interesting experiment.
