    Glimpses of Spring

    Glimpses of Spring

    These last two weeks have bounced between Spring-like and "kinda not Spring" here in Florida. Some of my family in the north report that flowers are blooming, and the snow is gone. Regardless of how non-committing Spring may be this year, we always anticipate it with hope. It's our sign that life has survived the frost and snow and that summer is coming.

    Drywall

    Drywall

    While the last episode was brought to you by the sounds of an air scrubber I wanted to toss out of the house, this week I could really use that air scrubber.

    There's dust everywhere. Everywhere!

    And that's just part of the fun of drywalling things. But though my arms and legs are sore, there were moments of peace in applying the sixth layer of drywall mud. It's "satisfying" was my kids would say. Well, satisfying, wedged between times of wanting to take a hammer to the very same wall because the thing just won't level out.

    Ah well, back to it!

    Not long ago, we found water damage in the kitchen of our house. In Florida, that means you get a mold test done. As a result of that test, a nice group of men wheeled an air scrubber into our house and began to tear our kitchen apart. 
    Then, they brought a second air scrubber because the first was lonely.
    Our house has been filled with the sound of moving air. You can't hear anything in the kitchen and living room. Instead of canceling the mix, or recording elsewhere, I had an idea. 
    What if the entire mix was made from samples of the air scrubbers? 
    So I got out the microphones and started recording. I sampled both machines, one recorded up close with the SM-57 and Shure KSM mics. The second was recorded through the exit chamber of the containment tunnel from the kitchen by jamming a SM-57 into it. The result was different types of "air moving past microphones" samples. 
    With a lot of finagling, I finalized 9 samples that I used to make this. And it's made entirely from those 9 samples. (Plus a whole lot of sound manipulation.) 
    If you're new here, this isn't a typical mix. 
    But I hope you enjoy it!

    The Calm of the Flame

    The Calm of the Flame

    I don't know about you, but this year has started with an exaggerated pace of getting things done. And after the lull of 2020, I'm somewhat good with that. But at the same time, it's easy to compare a break-neck pace to an open flame.

    If left unchecked, flames burn whatever they can without an ounce of mercy.

    And, yet, there's still something peaceful and life-giving about a fire. Flames can be wild and frantic, full of energy, but they can also be smooth and subtle while they move across the surface of wood, turning it to ash. With oranges, reds, and blues, there's a lot of beauty to them as well. But that same beauty is consuming. Not unlike trying to do too much in too short a time.

    Sometimes, Life Drones On

    Sometimes, Life Drones On

    When I was a kid, my dad offered the advice that we shouldn’t wish to speed life along. I was probably six or seven years old, but I couldn’t wait to be ten.
    As it turns out, my dad was right.
    Since then I’ve realized how much time we spend saying things like “I can’t wait for Friday” or “my birthday is in 21 days!” There’s nothing wrong with those kinds of hopeful anticipations, but they can quietly steal from the here-and-now.
    For me, these last two weeks have been a lot of fast-paced droning. The days are speeding by, but they hold one rapid motion while they go. I catch myself saying “I can’t wait for this project to be over” or “I’ll sleep on Friday.” But then I remember my dad’s advice and that our days are short, numbered, and sacred.

    All Things New

    All Things New

    When you really stop and think about it, isn't life a series of chances to start again?

    That's especially obvious in the first moments of a new year, or in spring. But each and every minute of our lives holds dozens of tiny opportunities to make new changes, or take alternate paths.

    We can choose to see those as either positive or negative things. Which will it be for you?
