About the ARAC Grant Project
I’d asked folks to send me their ideas for songs, so we could stay in touch during the pandemic and it would provide an exercise for me to create during the time of isolation. “Phoning It In” was my favorite idea (Mary) that I didn’t use, thought I thought it was funny and perfectly stated how for two years I had to iPhone my music in to you all during LIVESTREAMS!
Thank you all so much for responding! ! The project was not without it’s challenges! Some people sent much lengthier full pages than the two sentences (Paul!) requested. There were many repeated themes and some that didn’t work for me as topics. Consequently, I grouped a few ideas together and used them as sparks to create new tunes, listed above.
So please join me once again online 5/1 @ 5p for a Facebook LIVESTREAM. I’ll also sing tunes from my MN State Arts Board grant project answering the question, When Is It Time?
- Time To Let Go
- When is it Time For Me
- Time To Move On
Looking forward to being seen and heard as well as Deb’ll be reading your online comments back to me as we share the hour together.
Likely this music will become my new album coming in the near future!
