Okay, it's today. My birthday being when it is, it always falls around (or on) Mother's Day. This year we each get our own. This week has had a lighter schedule. Ideally, then, I'll get more office/promo work and practicing in. Sometimes that works. Really enjoyed subbing for my (pianist) friend, Erik Apland for a midweek service at the Saint Martin's Lutheran Church in Annapolis. I miss playing service music. It was a regular part of my life until age 30 (at that point, I had been music director, and organist of my home church in NJ for 11 years). When I stepped down, I became the only 30 year old in my awareness to get a "retirement dinner". I was presented with, not a gold watch, but a commemorative plaque. It was displayed in my office at the Chestertown Church for the 3 years (2003-2006) I was on staff. Now, back in "retirement".
