we moved into the barn yesterday. it is the place we will record the next cd. there is a little loft just around the corner at the top of the stairs. it sticks out over the great room and there is an old wooden ladder that goes up to it. there is just enough room for a mattress and that is where we slept last night for the first time. it was perfect. the room looks so nice from above. i think the walls are singing already. when the lights were out and when it got quiet it wasn’t really. quiet. i can’t wait to start making music down there. it was really hard to climb the ladder without shoes though. i would never have suspected that. it to be so difficult with out shoes. it was terribly painful. but i don’t really want to wear my shoes up the ladder, into the loft, to have them sit beside me through the night, but the pain was unexpected. i might need some ladder shoes. they could stay on the floor until needed and then when i climb i could slip them on and that would be their purpose. to take me up there. this morning the bird was back. it is so red. i hate that it flies into the window so fast. again. and again. and again. 7:30am it flies into the window. i wonder what it wants? it is so red. you should see it.
today is a lovely day. it has been lovely from the moment i awoke this morning to sunshine on my face through the window. and it is lovely now. the breeze has been cool and the sun has been bright all day. i bought an organ. it is called the troubadour 183 and it is lovely. i found it at an antique store just north of town. its keys are backlit with florescent lighting, that i typically am opposed to because it reminds me of hospitals, but when filtered through plastic keys with their corresponding note names illuminating, it becomes a pleasing glow of off-white that is in fact lovely. today is just a lovely day. i ate little caesar’s pizza while filling my vehicle with gasoline and the sunshine was warm and the breeze cool. when i got back jeremy came by and helped me unload the troubadour 183. we struggled under its weight but when i plugged it in and the keys lit up my back and hands hurt less. i think i am going to email everyone in the david crowder band blogring and tell them that dacrowdster is not me. wow that’s going to be a lot of work. but i plan to soon have a link on my bio to this blog so that i can keep everyone informed throughout the recording of our new cd. we don’t start until april so i have a little time. but today is lovely and shouldn’t be clouded with thoughts of such things as someone impersonating me. really excited about the new recording. moments ago i just discovered how we will start one of the songs. i was simply killing a bit of time strumming the guitar waiting on jeremy to come help me lift the troubadour when it hit me. inspiration is a strange and stunning thing. you never know when it will come floating in. today is a lovely day.
