My heart is full to bursting. Humming actually. Singing. Playing.
This blog hosts all my poems that remain spared from a computer crash, but now it also hosts a new tab for my ancient keyboard recordings!! Check out the piano and harpsichord and let it play in the background while you do other things. : ) Here is the link, since people are telling me they can’t find the recordings at the tab atop the blog: Erin’s Music.
I have been reunited after 25 to 30 years with a beautiful piece of me that was the product of years of diligent self-motivated work from ages 7 through 20 (and thanks to my parents for all those lessons!). And now I have proof it existed thanks to the generosity of a remarkable person and my folks for saving the cassettes lo these many years. It feels like the completion of a cycle, a returning home, a full circle back to a part of me that no longer exists in that form.
Some of them are better quality than others, but most are recorded on a Walkman and one is recorded on an old recorder prior to Walkmans existing. That’s how far in time I have traveled!
I will be spending this Valentine’s eve with my daughter at a fundraiser for one of the best things my community does (Hearts & Hammers) and if I can somehow figure out a way to sell individual pieces on my recordings to donations for my community’s causes, I will try.
