Stumbles in the Road

So I wanted to buy an album off iTunes yesterday morning. The album seemed to be just what I wanted to listen to after I finish my latest audio book on my Nano, and it was recommended by friends. I listened to sample tracks and liked what I heard. Signing on, I first got sidetracked with an Apple update *sigh*, then tried to actually buy the album. No - my password wasn't recognized as ligit. *sigh* OK, I'll reset the darned thing AGAIN (this happens regularly). An Email was sent for resetting my password, but I had to leave for work. Last night, I wanted to download it, but my DH had something else for me to do...So, this morning I finally got around to resetting my password. I'll try this one more time. Oy! If I didn't really want the album......





My writing has also hit a wall. I know this is temporary - I'm focused on the artwork I'm doing for OEAM Big Bang, having a blast making a "cover" illustration that's working. It isn't that often that my drawings work, so I'm really happy. I have two others in my thoughts, and my morning time, which is my writing time, has been taken up with graphite pencils and gum erasers. I hope to cobble some writing together quickly, but it probably won't be at the quality that I want. Nonetheless, there are things I've semi-committed to that I want to finish.



And I have to give a lecture to my local bead society in a month. I am a bit astonished by how many of my customers have told me that they plan on being there. I do have people who rely on me for accurate information in this field of craft, but I haven't had a chance to really work on this presentation yet. I have to get going on this, I can't let people down. Geez - guess I'm not letting any moss grow underneath my rolling stone just now! Have a less stumbling and more creative day and hug a person or animal - spread the love.
Thanks, Ellynn. I know my subject matter, but I really need to get going on the supplementary materials. I hate to walk into a presentation and talk on my feet. I've done it, but it's unfair to the people who have come to learn something. So I need to get my diagrams together, gather my examples, scan whatever images I need to, etc. I actually need to put a bit of thought into it :-) I'll hold onto your good wishes, I'm sure I'll need them at points in the next month :-)

I always need more hours in a day than the forces of nature allow. But I just try to fill them productively and feed my muse.

What album were you trying to download? (Always curious about new music.) I'm sure your presentation will be a great success!
An f-list friend had mentioned Blind Guardian
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_Guardian and their track "Noldor". They did an album called "Nightfall in Middle Earth" based on The Silmarillion, that really intrigued me, so I found them on You Tube and iTunes, listened a bit, and decided it was worth buying and downloading.
