The weekend was fantastic, as I expected. We were able to see a number of family members. We are so fortunate that our families live so close to each other, and that we're really not that far from them.
Musically speaking, my band (though I always have trouble saying "my band," since I didn't form it), has a show tomorrow night. Last night during one of our we-haven't-practiced-for-weeks-and-we-have-a-new-drummer-and-a-show-this-week practices, I have a very simple, but beneficial, revelation: I should incorporate the melodies I frequently "write" on any given day at any given moment into my solos. Why haven't I thought of my solos in that way before?
