Yesterday I had a phone conversation with a friend (a rare occurrence!) and it was a very good conversation. We discussed mostly music. This friend has been playing music professionally for many many years, and I always come away with something to apply to my own music.

For one thing, I'm discovering (to my great surprise) that it's normal not have a drive to play guitar for periods of time. Lately I've just been in the dumps as far as playing goes, and I keep thinking I'm a failure because I haven't been playing. However, life is far far bigger than guitar playing, and in reality isn't about playing guitar at all. Of course, I know this, but it is easy to get caught up in material things, the things that we can see. To quote The Book, "For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."


I'm watching the Presidential Debate on Fox News. Since we normally don't get Fox News (and it's soon going to be removed from the stations we get with SkyAngel) I have never had the chance to watch one of these before. Neither have I been able to vote, but that's beside the point. I'm so happy to see Ron Paul on there!!! Readers, I urge you as an American to check out his site.


I've started reading from my Spanish Bible again. I hardly know what I'm saying, but hopefully some of it will sink in :P I'm finding it really difficult to stick with it when there is no one locally to talk with. I'm considering calling some friends from various parts of the country who speak la lengua, pero si no puedo miro a la gente, no puedo comprendo. Ok, so I THINK I said if I can't see, I can't understand. It's much harder on the phone. Anyone got suggestions on learning the language? I'd like to find some books read on tape in Spanish. Maybe I should check the library.


I tried my hand at freehand airbrushing. It's not very good artistically or technically, but if you glance real quick it looks a little like a cub :D
