Things are getting serious around here!  The movers are here packing up all our belongings! They are being very kind and waiting to separate me from my Mac! :-)  

Hopefully I'll have something interesting about music or my singing to write before too long, once in Hanover.  

But in the meantime I have something that will keep you busy (as if you needed that, right?):  Go right now to http://www.playingforkeepsnovel.com  !!! Do not pass go!  This is a multimedia podcast novel by a very talented writer and podcaster - Mur Lafferty.  She came up with the idea for this novel years ago - long before the TV show Heroes - and has been working on it ever since.  Now, you can read the novel or you can listen to it as a podcast, narrated by Mur Lafferty herself. It's all completely free, too!  I would recommend subscribing to the Playing for Keeps Experience through iTunes directly from the site.  It's fun!  There are little surprises in the form of "Easter Eggs" in the pdf files, so if you decide to listen to it, be sure to download the pdf too and click on the link embedded in the text.

Enjoy!  And see you in Germany!

Hello! Sorry about the radio silence here!  I've been very busy with other things, not least with moving back to Germany!!!!

Yes, that's right.  Magnus was offered a very good job with E.on (a huge utility company) in Hanover and we decided to accept!  We have a one-way ticket to Hanover on 26 Jan!  It's so soon! And we only got final word just over a month ago! Arrgh!

We've had fun in London, but it's been quite frustrating for me professionally as you might have noticed from the decided lack of postings on performances. I've tried to keep myself busy doing stuff, but I'm a singer - darn it! I have to sing!

So, I'm confident I can get back into things back in Germany, where I know how it works and have a lot of contacts already.  Let's hope I'm right! I'm also planning on taking up teaching again.  I'm moderating a Yahoo!Group for teachers who use function as their basis for teaching voice, which is extremely valuable.  I'm also looking forward to being closer to 2 of my fellow Elysiae, Allegra and Amy, who live in Berlin.  And there are some things in the works with Elysium as well!

So, please stay tuned, subscribe to my Blog on this (or the main) page and you'll get a notification when I've posted. How cool is that? You only have to come by when you know I've written something!

Onward Ho!
