This day in history from:

Recording and Reunion

First, I like to state for the record that chamber sessions last Saturday was the perfect prescription for the blues. We started at 2:00 p.m. and ended about 6:00 p.m.

As we were packing up after mass, I was approached by a neighbor asking us a favor. They had to sing for a mass this coming Wednesday and they had no instrumentalist to accompany them. She asked us to record the instrumental accompaniment.

Had she had some recording equipment that time, we could have just performed the song for a few minutes. But she did not.

So I had no alternative but to record the songs in the computer and merely email the midi file to her the next day.

From experience, I used the think that will be a long, slow process. I am a bit rusty in the keyboard, as I have been concentrating on my wind instruments of late. Because of that, I thought it would take hours of repeated rehearsals to put up a decent recording.

But technology came to the rescue. The software I used allowed me to easily cover up or correct my performance mistakes. It was just a matter of deleting or correcting the rogue notes. I even re-recorded a new intro and simply pasted it with the rest of the song.

With that, it only took me just a little over and hour to do. But it was nothing fancy though. I only made the piano track and did not put additional instruments.

Anyway, we had a visit from some next-door neighbors from my old house (and hence, very good friends). And we enjoyed that visit, as they stayed way into the night. It was a good time to catch up on stories. It was also a good time for Bea to spend some time with her best friend.

In all, it was a very good weekend. It was just the thing I need to get through what happened last week.

Here's to a better week ahead of us.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
