Lent Writing 2014

lent-season-of-preparationThough I am not Catholic, I do believe in the sacredness of the Holy season, leading Christians to the most sacred of holidays, Easter. Each year I make a commitment to write for each day of Lent, the season of sacrifice. I publish my writing on my blog, www.coriconnors.blogspot.com. You’re welcome to take a gander. This year I use a random word pulled from a Random Word Generator on the internet. I use the word as a jumping-off place for my writing exercises.
A couple years ago I wrote the backstories to my songs on my blog, as part of my Lent writing. So if you’ve ever wondered what I was thinking when I wrote a certain tune, you can probably find the back story on my blog, along with the song’s lyric.
On a musical note, I have been writing short little songs about Colors for an online pre-school program. I will be recording them starting next week. After that, we start recording on an album of lullabies. It’s exciting to be back in the studio, and back in the creative writing mode.

Creative Juices

I so adore the holiday season. I love the colors, and the lights, and the frenetic energy, and the peaceful moments in front of the fire. And I savor the opportunity to sing music that speaks my heart. The beauty of Thanksgiving and Christmas, in the sense of performing, is I make no apologies for […]

Tis the Season

Who doesn’t love finding out that people want to come hear them when they have something to say? I don’t profess to be a great singer, or performer for that matter. I think what I do is talk with pitch, and that’s what I have to share. A casual family room type conversation what happens […]

Is it too early to put up Christmas lights?

I admit it, I have criticized in the past. I have clicked my tongue against the roof of my mouth and pursed my eyebrows, tossing my head back ever so slightly, culminating in a judgmental shake with the whisper of these words falling from my lips: “Seriously,” says I, “can’t we at least wait till […]

Seasons Change

Autumn is such a beautifully confusing time. All in one Saturday afternoon we pulled perfectly good summertime flowers from our flower beds, knowing the frost is coming and our yard work time is limited. Then we loaded the grandkids in the car and trucked on down Main Street to the pumpkin patch, where the kids […]

Welcome Warmth!

from my front porch Welcome warmth!  And a hearty farewell to old man winter! Welcome bare feet and cool green grass and whispering breezes and flowering bulbs of spring.  I do appreciate winter of its snuggle down-ness, and for the lovely contrast it sets up for springtime.  The bleak midwinter makes the splash of color in […]

Welcome 2013!

OK, I should be taking down the tree.  Epiphany has come and gone, and the city will be picking up spent Christmas trees at the curbside on Saturday, so unless I want an 8 foot evergreen lying sideways in the front yard until spring cleanup, I’d better get moving. We had a swirly holiday; joy […]

FAME!

Our little family at the Governor’s Mansion Artist Award, 2012. A few years back, Dave and I went to pay our respects to a deceased friend at one of our local funeral homes in the neighboring town of Kaysville, UT. It was pouring rain as we walked out of the building. I found myself huddled […]
