Warning: Gushiness to Follow

I married a dreamer. He calls himself an "idea man." And he has ideas. Unfortuanately, they are always million dollar ideas, as in it would take a million dollars to make work. Needless to say, we have to let them go and nothing ever happens with them.

About a year ago though, he had an idea that wouldn't cost us anything. It would just take a lot of work to make happen. So he started planning. He worked out the details. Then he started making it happen this summer. He has worked very hard and smoothed out a lot of bumps, and tonight his dream is going to happen.

Cherie Call will be playing a house concert this evening. She is a Deseret Book recording artist from SLC and a fabulous musician. She'll perform this evening in one home and then tomorrow in another. Bascially, a house concert is what it sounds like. A musician comes into a home and puts on a small concert. Someone has to be host and invites friends and family to come listen and everyone pays a small donation to the artist to pay their expenses and time. It's a pretty cool idea and I'm very much looking forward to the concerts.

Steve is hoping that these two house concerts can steamroll into a series of concerts in our area hosted by different people and featuring many different artists, known and unknown. I think he can make it happen.

I'm proud of you, Steve.

That's what they used to call "chamber music", but maybe you knew that. The aristocrats had small ensembles play in their homes to groups of friends. Sounds like fun. I'm glad that it worked out well. Love, Mom

You know, "Million Dollar Idea" would be a good name for a Bordercrossing CD

Warning: Gushiness to continue.

I don't know exactly what to say. You are so wonderful and supportive. Thank you for believing in my million-dollar ideas and for the healthy dose of reality when I need it and . . . thank you for believing in my $37.50 ideas too. :)
