It has been a long time since I last posted to this blog. In fact, the very last post I made was my New Year's Eve post. Maybe I need to keep signing up monthly for NaBloPoMo to ensure I keep posting...
Admittedly, this month has been a blur. I managed to pick up the flu virus, and it completely knocked me out for essentially a week. Even now, I'm still suffering from vestiges of the cold, and my singing voice is still not quite there, but it is returning, slowly but surely. (I should be able to sing on Sunday. Hopefully.)
If I feel up to it, I'll post my music lists and backdate them. In the meantime, there is a brand new month to look forward to. My parents will be celebrating their birthdays (Dad's is tomorrow, Mom's will be on Saturday), my nephew will be enjoying being First Chair (trumpet) with the East County Youth Symphony Concert Band)... oh, and I've agreed to perform in the Durham-Chapel Hill AGO's Member's Recital on Monday, February 13 at Watts Street Baptist Church in Durham. Members who will be playing are encouraged to play music composed by African-American composers in honour of Black History Month. There are at least six organists playing, and there is always room for more.
I can't make any promises that I'll be more regular in posting here... but at least I will try. Hopefully, I won't catch any more evil little germs or viruses anymore this season.

Prayer for Church Musicians and Artists
O God, whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven: Be ever present with your servants who seek through art and music to perfect the praises offered by your people on earth; and grant to them even now glimpses of your beauty, and make them worthy at length to behold it unveiled for evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP, p. 819)
