Saturday in A town

It's Saturday morning in Austin Texas...the cars are buzzing on the the road, the sun is almost shining and the day is warming up. I'm listening to a song called 'the beating of the sun'. We recorded our 2nd rehearsal and so we are listening to all the new songs. It's very interesting to me. I was talking to a friend about my newly changed attitude towards my songs. I used to be like an artist who only liked sketching (the songs) and then I would take the sketches to other people( musicians who produced the recordings) and say 'you fill them in with colour'. I had no interest in coloring them in beyond the vocals. That however is changing......I see some colours now and I want to paint the songs and I feel more confident of my colour choices and surer of my sketches...It's fascinating!
