Even though my son was off an adventure for most of my recording time - and even though he's always been my recording genius...
the go-to guy, with the studio equipment, who points me to a drum throne and sets me up with a professional mic.
(Aside: You know, I kinda like the idea of sitting on a throne, even if it's just one of those round, padded, adjustable thingees you see in front of - well, duh! - a drum.)
In the last issue of The Encourager (our virtual tea party - ahem, newsletter) I mentioned:
"I've been gathering up (and sprucing up) and recording a set of posts from Square-Peg People about connection, community and the sense of belonging.
And gathering, sprucing and recording another set about allowing, accepting, and yeah - appreciating our own uniqueness (read Square-Pegness)."*
So there I was - recording - but this time I wasn't sitting - on a throne or anything else.
I was standing (turns out standing is real good for voice projection), staring at the GarageBand controls on my laptop, which was precariously placed on top of an upside-down laundry basket. Oh, there should be a picture!
Not quite the same as Manchild's studio set-up, but that's ok! Because, between the marvels of GarageBand editing - and the positive energy and excitement I've got about these themes - well, it's all good!
Slightly-Brit is moments away from being done the gorgeous e-guides, but I'm still recording - no laundry basket is safe!
*In truth, this is a two-woman project: Slightly-Brit and I have been working together - she's been creating the gorgeous .pdf (e-guide) versions (with quotes and beautiful photos), and I've been recording.
But I kinda/sorta hate 3rd person speak - and so I avoided saying "We..." - even though, in this case, it has been a WE thing (shakes head until marbles rattle).
