Yesterday I promised myself I’d squeeze in a daily activity into my schedule. I didn’t really commit to anything because I’m already reasonably overextended, but I knew it had to be something that was related to my passion.
If nothing else comes of this commitment, I’ll have earned the fruits of practice. Zack pointed out that I already have a daily activity because I take and post pictures of my daughters each day. I think this is one of the most important parts of my day. Now I’ve added to the daily activities with my daughters and have committed to reading two of their books to them each day. This puts my time with the girls at the top of my day and will hopefully strengthen our bond.
But what about something that will advance the progress of my latest goals? Music is it, folks. I can’t say I’ll write or record a song every day. Jonathan makes good use of Oneword.com to practice writing – it’s short and you only have a minute. So I’ve decided that I’m going to put 4 lines of text to music. Any 4 lines at all. Last night, I actually put 16 lines of text to music in a Psalm that I arranged for Sunday. We’ll see what happens tonight.
