Buried Treasure 
I sent my first song to my mixer about two weeks ago, but he was on his way out the door for a long vacation and won't be back until next week. I'm not sure how long after he returns it will take him before he gets to my song. In the mean time I have started writing my 12th song and it is going to be amazing. It came to me like stumbling on a treasure of gold lying right there on the beach. I was cleaning up my computer when I found this file that I created three years ago. I listened to it to see what it was, and I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. I had recorded some ideas I had, but apparently at the time was busy with all these other songs and had no intention of finishing it, just tucking it away for a future project. The trouble is, I then completely forgot all about it...for three whole years! Wow, this song should have been at the top of my list! To get this song to reach it's potential will require much more work than any of my previous songs and it might take me months, but don't worry, while you're waiting I have 11 other songs that I will send to you right here.
There are seven musicians in my first song. All the tracks are finished now except that I want to bring one musician back to touch up a few spots. At that point I will send my song to a professional who will do the mixing for me. I have also finished recording my second song and decided to mix that myself, but the more I learn about mixing, the more I realize how little I know, and I'm starting to think that maybe that is not such a good idea. I also need to put a video together for each song. Since I broke my little toe two weeks ago I might not be able to perform the videos until I can stop wearing this hospital boot, which would be another 4 weeks from now. Sorry about that, but perhaps I will finish recording a couple of more songs while I am waiting on the toe! Watch here for updates!
Finished 11th Song
Three or four months ago I wrote the melody and guitar accompaniment for my 11th song. I also had a strong concept in mind for what the song should be about.  Lately, however, my focus has been to finish recording and publishing some of the songs that I have already written. I knew that if I started writing lyrics for this song that it might take a week or more for me to finsih, which would delay the release of all the other songs. So everyday I played the song through on my guitar singing "la, la, la" and everyday it seemed such a shame that I didn't have any words to sing ( often I did try making the lyrics up as I played along, but that merely served as the ground work for my composition.) Not having these lyrics just kept eating at me until finally I proclaimed, "That's  it! I'm doing these lyrics!" Just as I suspected, it did take me four or five days to write the lyrics, but now each time I play the song I have an incredible story to tell! I can't wait to get all of these songs out to you!
