Step right up for the magical, mystery tour...

Last night at dinner with friends it hit me when I said out loud, "Two weeks from... RIGHT NOW we will be sitting in some club in the East Village at the start of our magical, mystery tour." That is sobering - two weeks - and exciting, too. Today, a stunning warm spring day in the Berkshires will be given over to travel choirs. The house is all cleaned. The yard has been raked and the drainage trench dug. The car has passed inspection and all our reservations have been confirmed. Two weeks...

Last night we also rehearsed Sunday's jazz selections: it is always a treat to work with Jon Haddad and Carlton Maaia II. They are never flashy, always tuned in to the heart of the song and creative in ways that help me share my gifts in the best possible light. It is a treasure to work with them. Our guest sound man, Rob Dumais, was in the house, too and he brings a gentle, calming presence to everything he does - and makes the house sound system sing!

So let me just say that today is one filled with gratitude... and now off to the errands! We open worship tomorrow with this powerhouse!  Can't wait.
