I have been thinking of you SO MUCH! I know Boise folks have been asking, “Where are you girls playing next locally?” And honestly, we’ve been out of town a LOT this winter, more than normal. And now it’s Spring, which takes us out of town still!
Down time is good, but it hasn’t been down time for us at all. I feel like I’m wrapping a HUGE CHRISTMAS PRESENT for all of you! I’ve been working on this VIP page and putting things together and learning so much about technology. I’m pleased to say my usual temper-tantrums with “Miss Mac” have subsided, as I’ve selected to make “nice” with “her” instead. (I have a PC too for when Miss Mac is just beyond moody!)
We are hand selecting mp3’s for our members and I made a fun movie of our travels to Sandpoint recently. This “thing” that we are creating is BIG in so many ways. It really extends into what we do and who we are as music makers and is quite vulnerable.
I’ve noticed this when trying to determine which mp3 to select for you. “It’s not quite perfect, it still needs work. Am I really going to put that out there? Are they really going to catch this idea when I’m not even complete with it myself yet?” Bold, brave and a bit scary at times, I wonder if I’m up for the task. But something inside me says, “go into the fear”, simply because growth lives there.
We want to grow as artists and we want to share that experience with you. I don’t know of any other artist doing this in such a way, so… we have no one to guide us on this journey. We will certainly be open to feedback (but not “slams” of course). I will want to hear your ideas if you join and of course there is no obligation to join, nor stay a member.
So, when will it be up and running? Ha! I thought this week, however…Miss Mac is making me wait…she’s keeping me wai a a a a a ting (think Carly Simon’s “Anticipation” song then you’ll know where I live in my head with this! Ha!)
I’m on a learning curve with the technology. I’ll tell you all about this process in the VIP blog once the “door” to membership opens. But…all I can say now is….It’s Coming! J http://blazeandkelly.com/vip-corner/ Feel free to sign up on the “interested” list connected to this link.
