The Little Things…

I love music, as you may already know.

Today, I received a digital copy of a song that I recorded as part of our music group this year. After giving it a listen, I was struck by one significant thought: I am unbelievably thankful for the opportunity to make music as part of my job. 

In honor of that thankfulness, I decided to share the recording of “Spain” (originally performed by Chick Corea) as it was performed by students and yours truly, in all it’s unpolished/live glory:

And if you haven’t had enough, feel free to listen to the unpolished version of Autumn Leaves that we put together in about an hour last week. I can’t say it was an “on” singing day for me (ouch, sometimes listening to yourself can be less than fun!), but I loved what my students did with their parts, and I’m so impressed with how much they love music and how much they teach me!

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
