Is there anything better than a CD release concert? No. I don't think there is.
Ooooo, my heart's still soaring. And my Vox One CD collection is now complete (watch this space for five reasons why you need to buy their stuff).
Much a capella goodness, including two jazzy vocal improv numbers that had me grooving in my seat.
Then they closed the night with 'Could You Believe.' Squeeeeeeeee.
Of course, I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that I saw them 11 years ago in New Hampshire and there they were, 11 years later, back together and better than ever. This led me to thinking just how much my life has changed in 11 years. Hell, it's led me to thinking how much I've changed in 11 years.
And for all it's bumps and bruises along the way, I have to say: it's been worth every momement, even the bad moments.
Hunh. So this is what "no regrets" feels like.
Who ever thought that I'd get here, but here I am.
Guess they really are right, things do have a way of working out for the best. We may stumble. We may fall. But if we can get back up again, that's the battle won.
That's what a night of fabulous music and good company does for you. Right now, I feel like the world's my oyster.
As I mentioned before, 'tis my busy season (mid-November to mid-January seems to be run-like-a-chicken-with-my-head-cut-off time), so work is going a little slower on Water since I lack time in the day.
However, compounding things is that this is my huge payoff chapter on the AU, at least from Faith's point of view. So, I'm getting in three pages a day, despite everything, but I'm making sure I'm not contradicting myself while pulling it all together. Given the raw feelings on all sides, the characters insist on snipping at each other in the middle of Faith's narrative.
Given the way it's going, it looks like it's going to have to be posted in two parts, but I don't want to make a break point until I'm satisfied with it and it's complete. So be patient. It's coming and will be here before the end of the week.
And now, something a little uplifting for your weekend.
When things were bad, I played this song almost non-stop. I can honestly say that it gave me hope at a time in my life when I thought I had none.
To hear it in a positive frame of mind does more than lift your spirits, it makes it soar. And yet, the recording simply doesn't do it justice to the live performance.
I heartily urge you to download this. Then go and buy the CD.
