It was about 9:30 p.m.
and I was wrapping things up,
when I decided to play something,
just for the fun of it.

My fingers stumbled around the board
until I found that E minor
(a favorite key of guitar players
and violin players)
the one that felt right for tonight.

And so, here you have it, 042513b.

Just as a brief aside,
this song was supposed
to start with choir,
then go electronic orchestra
and then the two combined.

In order to combine the two
I will need to press buttons
on the typewriter keyboard.

So, I set it all up to go
and everything looks good.

Here we are,
eight minutes into
what I expect to be a 14 minute song,
with the third part coming right up
and needing to combine
the orchestra and choir together.

I punch the buttons on the keyboard.

Nothing is happening.


Not now ---

That is the abrupt ending that you are hearing.

It is me having an "aha" moment.

Not always a pretty sight.

Of course,
I share the one typewriter keyboard
with five different computers
(I had five keyboards at once,
once upon a time; 
I do not recommend it),
and, you guessed it,
I don't seem to have
checked all that good
before starting,
because the typewriter keyboard
is plugged into another computer
than the one I am using
for this music.


Back to the drawing board.

In the meantime,
hope you enjoy.

w/abundant and affectionate love,
