After several months of devotion to something that I can only describe as a journey of love I am feeling relieved and excited with the confirmation that I now have “product in hand”.
More than Magic now has a life of its own. I have nurtured this project, sometimes with bated breath and I will miss my daily commitment to its birthing process. Life will be different.
With one final rehearsal before performing this music live at the NAC, Fourth Stage here in Ottawa on October 31, I am anticipating a wee bit of sadness. As with every creative venture it is in the making where the most wonderful moments happen. Those spontaneous, serendipitous moments that thrill and exhilarate the participants. Sharing these have been heartwarming and renewing.
Where do I go from here? Oh yes. Now I have to sell my cds. This is the hard part. But I will remain positive and work out my strategies as time and opportunity prevails itself to me.
For the time being I allow myself to revel in the afterglow of what this experience has left me feeling.
Sometimes it’s worth lingering on the journey for a while before getting to the destination.
