I'm still on both LJ and DW for now. We'll see what happens next.

New choir!

Mar. 31st, 2012 12:22 am
I think it's been over two months since my last post. I haven't been particularly busy, only... not writing anything. And then I get embarrassed for not having written anything.

But here's one March post. I'll try to manage a couple of April ones as well.

I January a new church choir was formed in Ånge, and my choir buddy Mv and I decided to give it a try, and skip the one-hour-drive to Haverö. I think we got what we hoped for.

Ångekören is a working choir. When I came home yesterday, I felt that -- I had not only been singing, but working with the songs. We are in a bit of a hurry, since we are planning for a concert in early May:) We have already sung at one singalong and at a Sunday service. Our next engagement is on what is known in Sweden as Pink Thursday[1].

It feels like we're juggling a little more than we can handle at the moment, but I'm confident. We'll manage.

[1] Well, not really, it's more a matter of homonyms. 'Skär' means 'pink', 'skära' means 'to cut', but there is also an archaic 'skära', which means 'to cleanse, to purify'. It's that last one which is present in 'Skärtorsdagen', the Thursday before Easter.

Is anyone other than me having trouble with Livejournal? No?

A question

Jul. 28th, 2011 09:18 am
During the recent trouble with Livejournal, it appeared that Dreamwidth also was down for a couple of hours. Did anyone else notice this, or was it just me?
I have decided on a name for my dreamwidth journal: "Off the hook -- from the backwaters of northern Sweden". In case you wonder, it contains two possible translations of the word "avkrok", which is used in ads for the little town where I live now.

In very small steps, I am moving my primary journal here. Perhaps I'll make some icons next.
I'll confess: I only came here because the livejournal login didn't work for some reason. Looking around a little never hurts, does it?

My circle is clearly more busy than it used to be, even if I have seen most of it on livejournal. So maybe it's time for me to start using this account more regularly.

Last time I was here, I said I would use it for music and singing stuff, so let's start there.

I played some piano tonight -- music from Der Freischütz. I should find someone who can teach me to use the pedal properly. I know how to use it, but not when...
I have been thinking. I know I don't do this journal thing very well -- just look at my livejournal. So why am I sitting here with another one? I read my circle sporadically at best, and let's face it, nothing much happens there either.

Crossposting isn't really my thing, and I couldn't possibly keep track of what I said in one journal, and what I said somewhere else. So, in order to use this one, I need some kind of purpose. In my livejournal I try to write about writing and about general things: family and similar. But I say very little about singing and music.

I'm thinking that I could use dreamwidth for that: just write a post now and then about what I have sung recently. It doesn't have to be much, a simple 'I have not sung a single note' is fine (but probably not entirely truthful). And if I see something else that seems to fit here, I may write that too.

It may turn out that I get an intersection between my two journals anyway, but I think that's in order.
