In the last 24 hours or so I’ve gotten a couple of reminders that nothing in this career is guaranteed, that I can take nothing for granted. Just some disappointing news – a offered gig I can’t accept and not making the first round a competition I really want to do this year – nothing earth-shattering or devastating or career-ending by any means. A dose of reality.
These little “reminders” seem to come along every so often, and as disappointing as they are, they do help put things into perspective. This is my Job; I have to Work for the things I want! They don’t just come knocking on the door uninvited.
So, back to work! Yesterday I did some updating of my website, adding some performance info and finally getting a working link for Regnava on the Downloads page. (Also there: links to buy Ainadamar and Long Road Home via Amazon.) The recording of Regnava is about a year old now; I’m hoping to get a few new things recorded this fall. Something else to add to the “to do” list!
I’ll get some new pictures up on the site today, I hope. There are some great shots from Volpone, and, of course, the new headshots. Today I’ll be playing with Photoshop and Dreamweaver in between playing with Brahms, Rachmaninoff, Chambers, and Mozart…
