"Long is the road, and hard, that out of Hell leads up to the light." (Milton)
I have both personal challenges AND professional challenges for the month of October. Care to join me for the ride? Set your own challenges, keep us up-dated, and even jump on board as part of the team!
October ain't just Halloween, friends! It's time for the new Lifestyle Challenge!
My personal challenge is to continue to the path of shoulder recovery & recover my former fitness level; my professional challenge as a teacher is to get ALL the instructional materials re-worked and on-line for the instructors in our network (including the new student CD); and my professional challenge as a creative artist is to get the ball rolling on the new ALIEN BLUE goals (see below).
To kick it off, I did 1000 sit-ups today. BOOM!!!
What is YOUR lifestyle challenge for October???
I publicly revealed in late 2008 that I was going to shift my focus to include more live performance and then get a new Alien Blue CD written & released. 2009, so far, has seen the release of "Virtual Light" and has seen Alien Blue on a 7-state summer tour. In addition, I've played Woodsongs 9 times (7 times backing host Michael Johnathon, once backing Almira Fawn, and once backing Lori Lieberman) and Alien Blue opened for Muriel Anderson.
2010 goals include higher profile gigs for Alien Blue, doing workshops & clinics again (I haven't done those in a few years), and - with a little luck - at least one jaunt that takes us out of the country.
Stay tuned for details as they come...AND let me know if you want to be part of the Skinny Devil Team and make these goals a reality!
