The RPM Challenge is coming to a close in a couple of days. As I said in my last post, it has been an emotional ride this month. Some of the Haiku I wrote, I knew were personal. There were a couple that were obvious when I wrote them, but there were a couple I didn’t realize that were until a few days after I recorded them. A couple hit me like a ton of bricks and it has got me thinking about things. I don’t know if I can explain, but let me tell you- this RPM Challenge has brought out something in me. For better or for worse, I don’t know which yet.
I still have one more to record and I will be writing that Haiku today and hopefully be getting it recorded tomorrow and shipped out on Wednesday. I have all of the liner notes and album cover work and label done, except the addition of the last tune. I was able to get the latest recording done on Friday. I wasn’t sure that was going to happen with the weather, but it stopped raining late and we were able to get o the garage and record “Streetlamp”
The last tune I am doing is to a friend who sends me inspiration packages and before I moved away, I always went to to pick up charms, or a special pencil for writing, or something to that effect before I started any project. This year, without even knowing what my plan was, sent me a book of poems by one of my favorite poems! The Haiku Jazz I am doing for her is my way of saying “Thank you” I am hoping to have that posted in a couple of days.
In the meantime, if you haven’t heard my new tunes you can hear them here–
