Friday, The Ship Inn, Exton/Malvern, us singing, 7:30-10:30. The Ship Inn is cozy, pretty, great food and drink, and lovely welcoming people, who request songs and sing along. If you are in the mood for warmth, harmony, and friendship, this is a good place to spend your Friday.
The summer is winding down - well, okay, it is over. We performed our last outside show of the year. We have a few inside shows left this year, but we are starting our hibernation process, and to us, hibernation means creating stuff. We spent Sunday afternoon in bed, filming the music video for a song I wrote, well actually more of a jingle, about insomnia. What a fun life - to be adults and be allowed to act silly in the pursuit of art (this did not happen when I was a dentist). We spent the afternoon giggling and being silly, looking sleep deprived (and depraved) in every way we could think. Dave shot all the footage we need, and now we get to have fun with the editing process.
We made progress writing our song about retirement - it is taking forever because we really want this song to be perfect and fun. It is one of the few songs that we are truly writing together, and that is fun but very difficult - we have our fingers crossed for the outcome! The big dream (may not be possible) is to shoot the music video on the beach in Florida this winter, with all the retirees lined up on the beach drinking pina coladas. Maybe!
Dave continues to edit his book. What a wonderful world we live in - in this case, technologically speaking. Dave published his book on Amazon, but Amazon allows you to continue to edit the book after it is published, and Amazon will continually update the ebook. The English major in me is really enjoying this process!!
Dave got a new super-cool electric guitar, and we are trying to figure out 'how' or 'if' we should add a dose of electric to DaveLovesDonna. His leads are so beautiful - I hope it works out, and someone other than just me gets to hear his artistry!
We have added a couple new cover songs to our repertoire, and I am working (struggling) along to add 4 more. Soon. We have so many more projects on tap and faith in the process, whatever the outcome.
