Without music, life would be a mistake

I am sorry that I have not posted anything in a while. I am trying to figure out the balance of all my goals and dreams. Training, new job, song-writing, theatre, missing my family, walking my dog.....the list goes on and on and on!! You can keep up with my Ironman blog since that is taking up a good portion of life right now!! I will try to update this as much as possible in the next 4 months, please be patient.

An update on music. It is all going well.....After about a year of really wanting to finish an 8 song CD, I am done with recording all tracks. Just need to mix, do the packaging and then have a party! Will this happen before Ironman? Don't know. I hope.

My 80s band is still alive and kicking. We have a lot of dates coming up in the spring be it Cedar St., Carlos & Charlies out on Lake Travis and a wedding here and there. That will be my release in the face of 80+ mile bike rides and long runs! Nothing says let is all out like a good Cyndi Lauper or Bangles tune!!

I also think I have found a church to go to here in Austin. As many of you know, I have been trying to figure that all out. You would think at 33 I would stop questioning the spiritual life but I have not, and that is ok. I have been going to Gateway Church for the last few months, here and there, and I really like it. Truly authentic people that love life, and the church is super artistic and about expressing yourself through art and music. They have asked me to start singing there every once in awhile and I accepted.

You know me, gotta keep it busy, gotta put like 150 things on my plate and plan every second out!!

Some of you had been asking what is going on with it all....and so I wanted to let you know, I am still singing! I think it was Cervantes who said, "He who sings scares away his woes." So don't worry, I won't ever stop the music.

Have a great week!!
