“Where the HECK have I been? WHY?

Sometimes my “process” (my process, not the process) takes me far afield. In the darkness of winter, it can be hard to be sure where I am, or why.

This year, as spring light dawns, I know that some of where I have been has been is this: deeply and safely held in an incubator for a new approach to music– feeding the mind and ear to synthesize performance-type material for offertories with Greg. We had agreed, last vacation, to focus on these. And my Saturdays have been given to EYM instead of working on congregational music for Saturday night’s service.

One of my roles in our music has always been to be the “hit spotter” and “song fetcher.” Here is the weird array of stuff that has drawn me, while I wresteld all winter with faith issues:
