In the world of church music, my seasons are usually six months ahead of most everyone else. I begin listening to Christmas music around the first of May and typically have the selections on order by the end of July/first of August. I'm a little behind this year as I've had a difficult time making a decision. It's similar to a low level of bondage as I drudge through the multiple options and build my three piles of Yes, No, Maybe. To add to my angst, this year the publishers have sent a substantial amount of GOOD music to choose from. I emphasize "good" because my experience has been most years are simply reiterations of the previous two or three year's offerings.
So, here I am with lots of great choices and time is running out. That's when I decided to break the chain of indecision and move towards the finality of deciding. To do so, I needed a boost that could only come from..........my boat!
Eventually, the owner of the Morgan 30 waved me over and gave me a tour of his boat. We spent about an hour getting to know each other and I learned of his dreams to sail away but his wife's health would prevent that from ever occurring. Afterwards, as I headed back out to my homeport I realized I'm spending an immense amount of time worrying about something that really won't be that impactful. What's more important is that I just go and "do" what it is I know I should which is pick from the best that I have now and enjoy the season; well, until Easter music begins to show up.
