We had rain the other day. That’s been quite rare in Oklahoma during this drought. I grabbed my camera and got some good macro shots.


More raindrops

In music…

Other life stuff filled my week, so I didn’t do any on the composing project. But, it’s still there, on my piano and in my head, waiting to be finished.  I have the bulk of the project done. Song structure, melody, chord progression, tempo(s), etc. I am working on the instrumental turnarounds and jazzy fills. So, I’d say I’m 80% there. Probably one more working session on it, and I’ll be “finished” enough to submit it to the project manager. Who knows if he will accept this or send it back to the drawing board? In a way, this is soooo cool–to be recognized for my abilities and be asked to compose. And, it’s such a learning experience: in my own musical works, I have the final say-so. In this, the work has to satisfy someone else. It’s interesting to be on this side of things. Of course, if this draft of the composition doesn’t get accepted, I won’t be disappointed. I’ll just write something else. But, it’ll be sooo interesting to see how this all goes.
Have a lovely week.

    Oh my goodness, this is the exact same flower I took a picture of after it rained! I decided not to put it on my blog because I already had 2 flower pictures. I love it! It’s better then mine! 🙂 Thanks for liking my post by the way. 🙂

    I can only smile at your words. I don’t know music, but I enjoy listening. And am always in awe of those that have the talent and knowledge to make that music. However, I do know photography, and I think your after the rain flowers are great. well done.

    you did a great job,It’s really good to know that some people are more interested in using their creativity than doing nothing..(losing brain neurons)

    I’m thinking of Chopin’s Raindrop prelude while enjoying your photos (who knew that rain was in the key of Db major!) .
