Where it's "at"

Thrill: In the past week, I've met two Star Trek actors (Brent Spiner--Data, and Walter Koenig--Chekov).

But apart from that, I attended the ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO this week and met some amazing people (not in any science fiction show). I had the pleasure of watching renowned songwriters perform the songs that shaped my concept of music: Richard Marx ("Right Here Waiting"), Dan Wilson ("Closing Time"), Rob Hyman ("Time After Time"), and more. And having 300-some professional singers chanting the choruses in perfect harmony was pretty electrifying too.

Seeing these greats was humbling and energizing at the same time. This is the perfect time to get together with my old band and make music again. Tomorrow, it begins.
