A Musical Rut

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
~ M. Scott Peck

Sullivan and I did a run through of the Trilogy last night. He had re-written some of the lines in Song Two and I was unhappy with parts of the melody in Song One.

His re-rendering was absolutely breath-taking and made the story come alive so much more. I could hear the clang of steel on steel and see the earth become "stained red with our blood." Very moving.

After staring at Song One for awhile and singing it a couple of times, we figured out what was wrong and making me unhappy and now all is right and sounds as it should. To hear the whole piece at once is incredible. It is difficult to imagine being here, when four weeks ago it was only an idea. I wish you could hear it. Perhaps if all goes well on the tenth of December, you might!

Only three days to go until the moment of truth!
